Are you interested in studying for a Ph.D. in Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design or Interactive Media? I’m looking for highly motivated and skilled Ph.D. students who wish to explore topics relating to my research interests and previous work. In particular, I'm keen to work with doctoral students to explore the following topics (but I'm also open to new ideas and research directions!):
Ph.D. students in the UK must fund tuition and living expenses. If you are interested in studying with me, you can apply for funding to help meet these costs from the following sources. Before applying for funding under any of these schemes with me as your prospective supervisor, please contact me to discuss whether your planned research topic meets the requirements of the scheme.
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training Intelligent Games and Games Intelligence (IGGI) offers a unique opportunity for students to undertake Ph.D. research into games. Each year, IGGI offers a number of studentships that fund tuition fees and include an annual stipend of approximately £13,826. To qualify for an IGGI studentship, you must meet the eligibility criteria and be interested in exploring a topic that aligns with one of the centre’s research theme areas. I’m especially interested in working with students to explore the theme area of Embodied Interaction, but would be willing to explore Ph.D. projects on other topics if that match my research interests. For more information about IGGI and how to apply visit: http://www.iggi.org.uk.
The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH) offers funding for 54 Ph.D. studentships each year through the Arts and Humanities Research Council. These studentships fund tuition fees and include an annual stipend of approximately £13,826. If you want to study a Ph.D. with me and you are interested in investigating a topic that sits on the intersection between interactive technology and the arts and humanities, then you may be eligible to apply for a WRoCAH studentship.

Prospective overseas Ph.D. students can apply for a University of York Overseas Research Scholarship (ORS). Additionally, current University of York Masters students who are progressing to Ph.D. studies at the University of York can apply for an Overseas Continuation Scholarship (ORC). Both scholarships cover the full overseas tuition fee and a stipend of £5,000 per year for each year of successful study. The ORS and OCS schemes are highly competitive and decisions are made based on both academic merit and financial need.
