Dr Misbahu Zubair
Misbahu is a lecturer in Computer Science whose research interests lie within a Human Computer Interaction discipline, specifically the design, development and evaluation of edutainment applications.
Misbahu teaches computer games development modules Games Concepts and Computer Games Team Project. His research explores the use of games and similar interactive and immersive applications for serious purposes such as learning. He is interested in contributing new techniques, tools and technologies for designing, developing and evaluating such applications.
Misbahu's earlier research explored the design of accessible block-based programming tools for children with autism and associated learning disabilities to program games and other interactive applications. He worked with several special schools, interest groups, and disability experts to propose recommendations for designing accessible visual programming tools. In his more recent research, he is exploring novel tools and techniques that can ease the design and development of Augmented and Virtual Reality applications.
