My research has two main foci:
1. Virtual Reality (VR) health applications
2. Deceptive practices in healthcare. The psychological and social factors involved in marketing and uptake of health scams. These include, fake medical, nutritional, behavioural and alternative medicine therapeutics.
I am currently researching VR as an adjunctive pain control therapy for chronic pain.
