Currently, he is most interested in immersive technolgies, extended and virtual reality and digital twins. Wake has lead several studies which has involved participatory design, prototyping and evaluation of new technology, and has published extensively within this area. Wake is especially interested in how the development of inventive technology involves early testing of prototypes with users, to ensures relevance and usability of the technology, and how users can be facilitated as co-designers. He has experience with how development of digital technology for mental health is an interplay between establishing clinical needes, prototyping, user testing, validations with RCTs, to implementation and commercialisation.
