Stephen Robert Pettifer is a Reader in the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester in the UK.[1][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][13][16][17]


Pettifer completed his Bachelor of Science and PhD in the School of Computer Science, and work on virtual reality under the supervision of Adrian West in 1999.[2]


Pettifer's research interests are centred around the design of advanced interfaces for computer systems, in particular: scientific visualisation, scholarly publishing, and virtual reality.[18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26] His main research project project revolves around Utopia Documents, a novel tool for interacting with the scientific literature.


Pettifer currently teaches on part of the Advanced Computer Graphics course and Fundamentals of Distributed Systems.[18]
