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 KITE-Toronto Rehab and Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychology at Ryerson 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 in Virtual Environments. My goal is to provide a highly realistic and enjoyable VR experience while minimizing any adverse side-effect.
