I'm an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the Michigan State University Department of Computer Science and Engineering I'm director of the Media and Entertainment Technologies Laboratory (METLAB). I'm teaching CSE 335 Object Oriented Programming and CSE 473 Fundamentals of 3D Game Development in the Fall Semester.
I'm doing work in Virtual and Augmented Reality and also in computer gaming. Of particular interest lately are ways to teach or influence behavior using virtual environments and games. I also study Multimedia Systems, particularly new techniques for locating content in multimedia databases and for creating vivid and exciting multimedia presentations. We've been exploring how to use computer games to influence behavior.
