I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Computing and Design, California State University Monterey Bay. Beside making movies, I design and study interactions and user representations that enable equitable access to virtual, mixed and augmented reality. I am especially interested in designing and evaluating VR, MR and AR technologies that help enable people with disabilities realize their whole potential, and make high quality education widely accessible to anyone through a use of virtual reality. I am also interested in using new medium of virtual and augmented reality to transform film and theatre into a new, hybrid, participatory medium.
I am a founder and director of the Game Research Lab. As a part of my research, I build an open educational platform for VR-based education, UniVResity.org, as well as number of accessibility and 3D interaction apps.
I graduated with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Waterloo’s Human Computer Interaction Lab in 2015. Earlier, I graduated with M.F.A. in Film from York University, M.A. in Communication Studies from Wilfrid Laurier University, and B.Sc./M.Sc. in Computer Science from University of Wroclaw. Here is my Curriculum Vitae, and list of publications.
