Pioneering training solutions through research and immersive technology


Dr Sam Vine is an Associate Professor in Psychology at the University of Exeter, with a broad range of interests in the area of skill learning, expertise and performance under pressure. He is particularly interested in how visual attention (examined through eye tracking) and other physiological processes mediate motor skill and decision making performance. Sam applies his research to a range of different domains (e.g., sport, surgery, military, and aviation) and populations (e.g., children, elite performers and patient groups).

Kate Sprake is a certificated Radiation Protection Adviser and has worked in both the Nuclear industry and the medical sector and hence brings a wealth of experience to the team. Kate is still active in healthcare and undertakes risk assessments and delivers training for hospitals working with sources of ionising radiation. Kate is an experienced trainer working both with schools and industry.

Toby de Burgh has many years of experience working as a senior consultant in the nuclear industry, primarily in nuclear safety but also waste management and engineering. He started his career working with submarines at Devonport Dockyard before moving into reactor decommissioning with Magnox and Research Sites Restoration Ltd. Toby is also a video specialist having worked on creative commissions for the UK Film Council and has produced a great deal of training content for industry.

Nic Steevenson having worked within a specialist team of fast jet aviators including highly qualified instructors and test pilots,  became fascinated by human performance and why it is that even the highest of flyers make mistakes. She now works in human behaviour training within the airline industry.

Mike has a huge amount of experience in VR creation and is also a capable 3D designer being competent in Blender and Autodesk Products.

Dr David Harris is a researcher in Psychology interested in skill acquisition, cognitive training and performance states. In particular, he is interested in the role of eye movements and visual attention in these areas. David has applied his research to a range of environments, including surgery, the military and gaming. His current work focuses on virtual reality and assessing the effectiveness of virtual environments for training cognitive skills.

Tom Arthur is a PhD student at the University of Exeter who is exploring new ways of studying and training human motor skills. His research and professional experiences span across various domains, including elite sport, high-risk occupations, and clinical psychology. Tom’s academic work integrates research methodologies from wide-ranging scientific fields (e.g., psychology, sport science, virtual-reality, and computational neuroscience), and he is currently combining eye-tracking technology with VR to investigate sensorimotor difficulties in autism.
