SFU 2019 Vanier scholar explores impact of virtual reality on chronic illness
Could virtual reality (VR) become a tool to support people suffering from chronic illness? Simon Fraser University student Denise Quesnel thinks so.
Quesnel, a PhD student in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) is one of six SFU researchers recently awarded Vanier scholarships. Her research hopes to contribute to adaptive, accessible technology for adults with chronic illness, improving their overall social, emotional and mental well-being.
