Ross Brown


is an Associate Professor within the School of Computer Science (CS), QUT, where he is a co-director of the CLEVAR research group (  His main research interests are in immersive technologies, such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).  He seeks to understand how immersion and presence influences humans.  In short, his research question is: “How can VR or AR environments enhance human cognition?”. Experimental results have shown that VR enhances memory recall, he wishes to further explore how these cognitive effects influence human cognition through an embodied cognition lens.  Many application domains in the areas of knowledge management, simulation, training, education and gaming will benefit from this work.  At present, he is researching the use of such systems in intellectual disability training, business process elicitation, training and modelling, rehabilitation compliance and environmental knowledge elicitation.
