A practicing artist, researcher and lecturer based at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD), University of Dundee. I am currently investigating the application of 3-D computer animation and visualisation techniques in clinical imaging. My research explores methods and techniques of interpreting clinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data. This work investigates the potential for digital 3-D computer-based strategies to engage patients in improved anatomy and disease understanding. The research also investigates the implications of the 3-D CGI artist’s intervention in clinical imaging. This work has been undertaken in conjunction with Department of Radiology, Ninewells Hospital, NHS Tayside, Dundee.
Current Research Projects
Project: ‘Development of Interventions to Increase Physical Activity Among Inactive Young People with Long-term Conditions: MRC Complex Intervention Framework Phase I Study using Asthma as an Exemplar’. This multi-institutional explores how 3D computer and visualisation animation might enhance understanding and communication among young people with asthma. Collaborative institutions include University of St Andrews, University of Stirling, University of Edinburgh and University of Newcastle.
