Dr. Gareth Young

Assistant Professor (Computer Science)


Gareth is an interdisciplinary Assistant Professor in the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin. Within the Graphics and Vision discipline, he researches the intersection of artistic practice, human-computer interaction (HCI), and extended-reality (XR) technology. His academic interests have grown from a life-long passion for technology-mediated creativity, as applied in multiple disciplines and co-creative media contexts. Haptics, audio, and visual stimuli, all subsets of human psychophysical experiences in virtual realities, are the focus of much of his research in exploring human experiences of digitally mediated creative practice and the tools applied in conceptualizing and realizing artistic works. Gareth enjoys working as a creative technologist within Computer Science as multidisciplinary research contributes unique perspectives, and analysis of this type produces more exciting and innovative outputs.
