I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Communication at American University and the Program Director of Graduate Game Programs at the American University Game Lab. I received Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo and M.F.A. in Film from York University. In my research, I focus on Machine Learning and Artificial Reality Continuum (ARC) applications in theater, health, and education. In my artistic practice, I experiment with volumetric and generative filmmaking.  I teach game development, game design, and immersive filmmaking.
