Mark's research investigates the impact of digital media in general, and 3D visualization in particular, on the design and perception of environments. Research interests are rooted in landscape architecture and informed by experiences in professional design practice. One of his current research focuses is the empirical evaluation of multisensory spatial perception, with the aim of foregrounding human experience in the design and planning of environments for more ecologically, socially and culturally sustainable outcomes.
