John Dudley is a Research Associate at the Engineering Design Centre within the Intelligent Interactive Systems group.  His work focuses on the design of efficient and productive user interfaces for head-mounted augmented and virtual reality.  John is particularly interested in the process of dynamically incorporating user preference and task performance indicators into the design and configuration of such interfaces through probabilistic methods.
