Telematics: Main Image

Programme Lead: Professor Michael Rofe

Online networking platforms offer significant potential to connect people and enable access to a wide range of services for those living in remote parts of the world. Drawing from expertise developed through projects such as Online Orchestra, Vconect and University of the Village, this programme considers the role of telematics in enabling access to education, remote participation in the arts, remote consultation with G.P.s, and the co-production of new art forms.

The research team includes software developers and user experience designers, allowing us to develop bespoke platforms that meet the needs of particular users.

Research opportunities

We welcome applications for PhD or MPhil that align with the Telematics programme.
