Simulation and Interaction in Virtual Environments
I run the Simulation and Interaction in Virtual Environments (SIVE) Lab.

SIVE Lab Website

My research efforts are highly interdisciplinary and are focused on simulation and interaction within virtual environments. Specifically, my research group at the University of Minnesota Duluth works on NSF-funded projects that simulate the complex interactions between urban cities and the environment as well as develop virtual environment solutions for integrating haptics with simulated terrain.

My research group is composed of Master's level graduate students, and many talented undergraduates. My lab is also currently seeking a post-doctoral researcher to join our group for the next 1-2 years. We are looking for people who have experience with simulation, GPU-coding, and interaction in virtual environments. If you have questions, please email me!

I am also a Posters Co-Chair for IEEE VR 2014.

ACM Club
I am the faculty advisor for the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Club at UMD.

UROP (UMN Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program)
I am interested in involving talented undergraduates with my research efforts. If you are interested, please contact me by email or stop by my office.
