Biography

He graduated from the HIT Lab US at the University of Washington, Seattle in 2007. His PhD research was in a positioning tracking system for Augmented Reality (AR) applications, particularly in an extreme condition cockpit situation. One of his early conference publications was awarded 'Best Paper Award' at the IEEE Virtual Reality 2002 conference and later work was awarded a US patent. He currently holds two US patents and a number of top-tier international conferences and journals. During his PhD study, he also gained industrial experiences working with two high-tech start-up companies (bioengineering and photonic) in 2006-2007. In late 2007, he joined the Information and Computer Science department at the University of Hawaii at Manoa as a junior researcher specialising in AR, before he moved to Tasmania, Australia to join the then-newly established HIT Lab Australia at the University of Tasmania in August 2009.

Research Themes

His research aligns to the University's research theme of Data, Knowledge, and Decision. His research interests include advanced user interface, education technology, and telerehabilitation. His over-arching research interest is in applying advanced user interface technologies such as virtual reality and augmented reality in other disciplines and real-world applications.

VR-based Human Data Interaction (2016 - 2019)$29,996
Description
This project will investigate fundamental knowledge in the area of Human Data Interaction (HDI) with Virtual Reality (VR) technology. The project's general aim is to answer the following fundamental questions:1) What aspects of the VR system design are most critical for effective exploration of complex data sets?2) How can multidimensionality and heterogeneity of large data sets be effectively interacted with using VR based control and display modalities?3) What kinds of HDI tasks are suitable with VR based systems and how does this compare to conventional interfaces?4) What are suitable metrics to quantify the effectiveness of VR based HDI?A key outcome of the project is, from the empirical data addressing the questions above, to establish a framework for HDI using VR technology.

Description
The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Club will engage local children, from outer urban and regionalcommunities, in rich hands-on learning experiences at the University of Tasmania in the area of computer science. The Club is a community initiativebetween University of Tasmania and Launceston Church Grammar School (LCGS) to proactively engage with the local community. The Club is anextension of the Maths and Science Clubs offered to outer urban and regional school children by LCGS and will foster logical thinking, problem-solving,teamwork, multimedia product design and application of ICT literacies. Students will apply these skills and knowledge immediately in their everydaylives, including school, to research information, analyse data, solve problems, design and create expressive multimedia products, to name a few. Thisknowledge and these skills are vital to preparing young Tasmanians for jobs of the future. Additionally, students aspirations for further study at theUniversity of Tasmania will be informed through the ICT club.

Pathways to Market: Transforming Food Industry Futures through Improved Sensing, Provenance and Choice (2014 - 2018)$4,450,000
Description
This project aims to transform the Australian food industry by innovatively integrating leading-edge applied research with commercial partner expertise and business priorities in two distinct food supply chains. It will demonstrate how new knowledge on food production and consumption generated through novel sensing technologies and advanced modelling techniques can be implemented in smart applications. The project will produce the world's first holistic investigation of how intelligent use of information can contribute to powering food industry competitiveness, environmental sustainability and innovation in food value chains from producers through to end-consumers.
