Probing the metallicity and ionization state of the circumgalactic medium at z~6 and beyond with OI absorption (2013)
Journal Article
Keating, L. C., Haehnelt, M. G., Becker, G. D., & Bolton, J. S. (2013). Probing the metallicity and ionization state of the circumgalactic medium at z~6 and beyond with OI absorption. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 438(2), doi:10.1093/mnras/stt2324

Low-ionization metal absorption due to O I has been identified as an important probe of the physical state of the intergalactic/circumgalactic medium at the tail end of reionization. We use here high-resolution hydrodynamic simulations to interpret t... Read More about Probing the metallicity and ionization state of the circumgalactic medium at z~6 and beyond with OI absorption.

Embodiment in skateboarding videogames (2013)
Journal Article
Martin, P. (2013). Embodiment in skateboarding videogames. International Journal of Performance Arts and Digital Media, 9(2), doi:10.1386/padm.9.2.315_1

This article analyses the avatar in action games as both object of perception and instrument of action and perception. This allows for a picture to emerge of the way in which avatars in 3D action games serve as a kind of commentary on what it is to h... Read More about Embodiment in skateboarding videogames.

A study of unidirectional swipe gestures on in-vehicle touch screens (2013)
Conference Proceeding
