Graduate Research Projects:

  • Educational Technologies: Use of various technologies for creating interactive and personalized content, virtual and in-person presentation of content, and reflective tools for learning assistance.
  • Multimodal Human-Computer Interaction: This project investigates the use of multiple modalities, including but not limited to video-based input and wearable devices, to control games and other applications.
  • Procedural Character Animation: This project involves creating computational models and software components to generate character animation (such as walking, dancing, facial expressions, etc) instead of using pre-captured and keyframed animations.
  • Gamification and Serious/Educational Games: This is an umbrella for a variety of projects related to the use of digital media for non-entertainment, especially educational, objectives.
  • Other projects may be available based on student interests and skills, especially in the area of digital art
