Luke Child

Hey folks! I'm Luke (he/him pronouns), a white male with glasses, a bushy beard, and a fairly eclectic fashion taste! I'm a second year PhD student at the University of the West of England. My PhD explores the affordances of sonic interaction in designing accessible navigation and narrative experiences in virtual video game environments. I'm supervisied by Dr Natanya Ford and Dr Tom Mitchell. Much of my work has involved understanding the experiences of blind gamers and the use of sound for developing accessible gameplay mechanics. My background however is in music composition and production, particularly with experimental/slightly chaotic music with uncommon time, unusual instruments and unconventional scales and chord changes! Glad to make your acquaintance.
