Reality of an IGGI PhD student…


As one of the youngest PhD students to have ever been accepted onto the IGGI (Intelligent Games and Games Intelligence) program, Tara has specialised in immersive Virtual Reality and is fascinated by the incredible opportunities that these new technologies provide. Tara Collingwoode-Williams received a BSc in Creative Computing (1st) at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2014. She then went on to take a gap year from studying, working at Decoded, a start-up company that teaches different companies how to code. Here she worked within the product team to facilitate, as well as creating 3D models, creating online content for BBC and providing a prototype virtual environment for facilitating. Following this, she took part in smaller work experiences, working within the BBC(redBee) Digital team before then deciding to continue her research from her dissertation work on Interaction with Virtual Reality in 2015.
