Career Summary

Biography

Dr Keith Nesbitt is a Senior Lecturer in Information Technology at the University of Newcastle. His research interests include computer games, virtual environments, user-interface design, information visualisation, agent-based modelling and creative processes. With an applied focus in these areas of research, Dr Nesbitt explores how these elements can be employed to solve real world problems. In particular, he looks at how information can be shared and received through engaging the senses.

He has successfully secured funding for various projects, including the Strategic Initiatives Research Fund grant for his work in health informatics; the Teaching and Learning Project grant for the development of a virtual pharmacy; and the PRC in Physical Activity and Nutrition Seed Grant for his research in quantifying dysfunctional movement.

Dr Nesbitt previously worked as a research scientist for BHP, assessing emerging computing technology and their potential impact on BHP business domains. He currently teaches into the courses related to computer games and computer programming.

Dr Nesbitt is also a member of the School of Design, Communication and Information Technology’s research committee, as well as the Applied Informatics Research (AIR) Group. Outside of academia, Dr Nesbitt is a seasoned songwriter and painter, and has exhibited his artwork in Newcastle, Sydney and Boston.
