About:
I am the current the Director of the Wearable Computer Laboratory at the University of South Australia. I am currently a NICTA Fellow, CTO A-Rage Pty Ltd, and visiting Scholar with the Human Interaction Technology Laboratory, University of Washington. I am the inventor of the first outdoor augmented reality game ARQuake. My current research interests include: wearable computers, user interfaces, augmented reality, virtual reality, CSCW, and tabletop display interfaces. My academic qualifications include the following: 1) B.A. in Physics, George Washington University; 2) M.S. in Computer Science, University of Virginia with a thesis titled: Pipeline Pyramids in Dynamic Scenes; and 3) Ph.D. in Computer Science, Flinders University with a thesis titled: Animating Direct Manipulation in Human Computer Interfaces My experience includes working at the School of Computer and Information Science, University of South Australia since 1990. I have run my own computer consultancy company. I was a Computer Scientist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (A major US government laboratory for the Department of Commerce.), and a software engineer for the Computer Sciences Corporation and the General Electric Company.
