I'm a cognitive and experimental psychologist with a strong applied research focus. I believe that research is most meaningful when it solves real problems and improves your quality of life.
My work as a Scientist at the KITE Research Institute (UHN) and Adjunct Professor at the Department of Psychology at the Toronto Metropolitan University focuses on human perception and performance in Virtual Reality (VR) applications.
In particular, I investigate the phenomena of motion sickness and self-motion perception (vection) in Virtual Environments. My goal is to provide a highly realistic and enjoyable VR experience while minimizing any adverse side-effect.
