Research Interests

VR/AR/MR for Learning and Training

We use wearable technologies to capture users’ neurophysiological responses across different work contexts in a simulated mixed-reality environment. We seek to develop data-driven solutions to better understand and predict human performance and cognitive states, as well as to make their work better and more enjoyable.

VR/Smart & Connected Communities

We aim to develop a digital twin model of future communities with bio-signals to better understand the interactions between humans and community environments in daily and disaster scenarios.
