Anthony Brooks

PhD Art, Media and Design 2006

Originally from Pembrokeshire, Wales, Dr Anthony Brooks has been working in the field of medialogy for more than 20 years, investigating the links between digital technology and human interaction. His work has been used for many years in the rehabilitation of disabled people. Through the use of virtual technology and sensors, Brooks and his team have developed a learning environment that encourages people with disabilities to increase and improve their motor skills.

Dr Brooks is active as an EU Expert for the European Commission and project panel assessor (FP6 & FP7; Horizon 2020; Erasmus+). 

Additionally, he is reviewer for the Council for the Humanities of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), e-health innovations by SMEs, and The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), UK.

He also runs his own 'not-for-profit' SME that is an international consultancy and residential "training trainers" retreat in Denmark (a private beach/spa/sauna/studio complex) where professionals get hands on with various sensor-based technologies and role-play to learn opportunities and potentials for their clients/patients etc. This emerged from his research which began in the mid-1980s.

Amongst his current roles he is an Associate Professor/lecturer in Medialogy at the Aalborg University in Denmark where he is also the director of Sensorama Lab, a multi-room Virtual Reality, Games/Perceptual controllers and Usability research and development complex where digital media is investigated and studied.
