Lead Investigator

Dr. Mark McGill

I’m a Lecturer in Extended Reality (XR) and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) in the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow, and part of the Multimodal Interaction Group within the GIST research section. My research spans work at the intersection of XR, HCI, and the anticipated future of spatial computing, including:

  • Future XR-enabled passenger experiences, as a founding part of ERC ViAjeRo project, examining key problems around motion sickness, interaction in constrained spaces, social acceptability, telepresence/communication, reality awareness and more.
  • Future productivity experiences, and the benefits to mobility and ergonomics posed by XR
  • The societal opportunities and challenges posed by mass adoption of XR (and in particular everyday Augmented Reality as pursued by every major tech company) around privacy, freedom of expression and more.

I’m always on the look out for promising students with intersectional interests in XR, so do drop me an email if you want to collaborate or be supervised here!



Dr. Joseph O’Hagan

I am a lecturer in Human-Computer Interaction within the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow. My research interests include cross-reality XR interactions, virtual and augmented reality technologies, and games user research.


Research Co-Investigator

Dr. Graham Wilson

I’m a Research Fellow in Human-Computer Interaction and Mixed Reality, having previously worked on ERC ViAjeRo and in digital health at University of Strathclyde. My research in particular focuses on the psychological, cognitive and physical benefits/risks of long-term usage of virtual, mixed and augmented reality media.



Prof. Mohamed Khamis

I am a Reader (Associate Professor) in Human-centered Security at the University of Glasgow’s School of Computing Science. I lead the SIRIUS lab, which conducts research at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction, privacy and security. I regularly publish in HCI, usable security, privacy and eye tracking in venues like CHI, USENIX Security, IMWUT. See my website for more details.
