Good to see you are interested in virtual reality! ?

I started exploring virtual reality in 2008, and did so intensively until 2012. I decided to devote more time to it again in 2020 because of its potential for improving the online learning experience for language learners and teachers. Since then, I have worked first as Research Manager and now as Head of Research at Immerse, the first virtual reality platform for English language teaching then, and now the first language immersion program in the meaverse.
