Research & InterestMy research interests include: Virtual reality, virtual embodiment, human-computer interaction, 3D user interfaces, locomotion, navigation, system design and evaluation, and human perception.
ResumeI am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Event Lab in Barcelona, Spain. I received my PhD from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under the supervision of Professors Henry Fuchs and Mary C. Whitton. My PhD research focused on locomotion interfaces in virtual environments and enabling people to physically walk in small spaces while walking in much larger virtual spaces. Please see my dissertation for more information about Redirected Free-Exploration with Distractors.
I am currently working in the European project, Virtual Embodiment and Robotic Re-Embodiment (VERE). My research is focusing on the psychological effects of embodiment in virtual environments.
