Expertise Summary

Aircraft passengers' physical activity levels are often limited during flight for extended periods of time, which can have serious impact on health, comfort, and passenger experience. Her research aims to identify aircraft passenger behaviour, postures and discomfort areas during flights and tries to find solutions to encourage passengers to move more while seated in the aircraft seat by using immersive technology-based strategies.
