Education

Pettifer completed his Bachelor of Science degree and PhD in the School of Computer Science, and work on virtual reality under the supervision of Adrian West in 1999.[4]

Research and career

Pettifer's research interests are centred on the design of advanced interfaces for computer systems, in particular: scientific visualisation, scholarly publishing, and virtual reality.[8][9] His main research project revolves around Utopia Documents, a novel tool for interacting with the scientific literature.

He is a co-author of the bioinformatics textbook Bioinformatics Challenges at the Interface of Biology and Computer Science: Mind the Gap[10] with Terri Attwood and Dave Thorne.

As of 2017 Pettifer teaches on part of the Advanced Computer Graphics course and Fundamentals of Distributed Systems.[8]
