Understanding the affects of embodiment and interaction within Virtual Reality
Tara hopes to achieve this by looking deeper into embodiment and virtual characters, non-verbal communication and how this reflects on social interaction and collaboration in games in virtual reality. This could be important in the Game Industry in creating more immersive gameplay and potentially unlocking new and exciting user interfaces
