We were thrilled to see CDE Research Engineer Kwamina Edum-Fotwe graduate with his EngD last week. Huge congratulations to Kwamina and his supervisory team Dr Paul Shepherd at University of Bath and Dan Harper from Cityscape.
Good luck with everything in the Future Dr Edum-Fotwe!
We were so proud of Research Engineer Asha Ward for getting to the Final stage of the EPSRC Connected Pioneers Competition. Asha attended the ceremony in Manchester and is pictured here with host Rachel Riley.
Asha’s multimedia presentation was selected as one of the finalists for the ‘Making Digital Technology Work for People’ category.
You can hear Asha talk about her research ‘Music Technology for Users with Complex Needs’ here: http://www.digital-entertainment.org/about-cde/case-studies-2018/
CDE Research Engineer Ifigeneia Mavridou won ‘Best student short paper’ at the recent International Conference on Disability, Virtual Reality and Associated Technologies 2018, with her paper ‘Towards valence detection from EMG for Virtual Reality applications’.
Congratulation Ifigeneia on your very well deserved award!
