Dr Jonathan Duckworth’s research interests relate to the design and evaluation of systems for movement rehabilitation in patients who have sustained traumatic brain injury.
He has been involved in the development of interactive 3D graphics for more than nine years at RMIT’s Virtual Reality Centre. Dr Duckworth has developed an approach to rehabilitation which integrates digital media, tangible user interfaces, augmented feedback, and artistic expression to enhance patients’ motor and cognitive skills. His research demonstrates how rehabilitative applications may benefit significantly from theories of embodied interaction design and digital media art. Dr Duckworth was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellowship in 2011 and is based at the School of Media and Communication.
