Emmanuel designs interactions between people, places and products. His primary research interests are in designing and co-designing interactions, experiences, tools and games that inform and influence behaviour change, promote a better society and facilitate health and wellbeing. 

Emmanuel has been employing a practice-based and co-design approach in investigating how digital economy can enable a more sustainable society, especially in the areas of health and well-being, energy and defense. 

In terms of the former Emmanuel has been investigating how gameful design along with the gamification of repetitive therapy interventions in neurophysiological (such as stroke) and neurodegenerative health conditions (such as Parkinson's), can lead to higher patient motivation levels and adherence to therapy. These interventions have been based on co-design with expert patients and clinicians and the bespoking of everyday gaming technology widely available at home.

In terms of the latter his participation under the Solar Soldier project, led to an innovative solution of a solar-powered battery pack that can be incorporated on the uniform and kit of infantry soldiers to harvest energy, whilst reducing the bulk and weight of their kit. The project attracted media attention with articles published by the Daily Mail, Discovery News and many other online media outlets.

Safest wireless protocol more vulnerable than expected

A new study published by a member of the ImaginationLancaster team in the International Journal of Information and Computer Security, reveals that one of the previously strongest wireless security systems, Wi-Fi protected access 2 (WPA2) can also be easily broken into on wireless local area networks (WLANs). According to the IET Magazine: "An international team of researchers has exposed holes in the WPA 2 protocol that has so far been considered...Read full article

Exposing WPA2 security protocol vulnerabilities

Outcome

Wi–Fi protected access 2 (WPA2) is considered one of the most secure protocols employed in wireless local area networks (WLANs). This is despite of having significant security vulnerabilities. The aim of this paper is two–fold. Firstly it analyses the WPA2 security protocol and presents its...More information
