Research Interests
Augmented and Virtual Reality, Scientific and Information Visualization, Perceptual and Cognitive Evaluation Techniques, Empirical Methods (Experimental Design, Statistical Analysis), Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Graphics, Theoretical Computer Science

My research interests in visualization, especially evaluation and human-factors aspects of visualization systems, seem like a good fit with the mission of GRI.

Current Research Projects
Game Technology for Increasing Interest in Computer Science
HCC: Egocentric Depth Perception in Augmented Reality
High Performance Computing Visualization Initiative: Visualization User Studies
CT-ISG: Empirically-Based Visualization for Computer Security and Forensics
