My Current Research - Empathic Mixed Reality
Empathic Computing is a research field that aims to use technology to create deeper shared understanding or empathy between people. At the same time, Mixed Reality (MR) technology provides an immersive experience that can make an ideal interface for collaboration.
I explore how MR technology can be applied to creating Empathic Computing experiences. This includes exploring how to share gaze in a remote collaboration between Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) environments, using physiological signals to enhance collaborative VR, and supporting interaction through eye-gaze in VR.
I'm a Research Fellow in the School of Information Technology and Mathematical Sciences, University of South Australia. I work with Prof.Mark Billinghurst at the Empathic Computing Laboratory (ECL) exploring research in Mixed Reality and Empathic Computing for remote collaboration.
My Past Research - Natural Interaction for Augmented Reality
I have plenty of experience developing AR and VR systems. One of my favorites is G-SIAR or Gesture-Speech Interface for Augmented Reality from 2013. In this system, users can use hands for a direct manipulation or speech and gestures to manipulate virtual contents indirectly.
