Ph.D. student in Psychology (2013-2017) The study of sensory integration has never been more important given the nascence of the consumer VR industry. In my work I try to find out how we process multisensory information, with a view to exploiting this knowledge so that we can inform future developments in technology. Currently I am […]
Ph.D. student in psychology, Brain, Behaviour and Cognitive Sciences (2013-2017) “Does this look heavy to you?” In her doctoral thesis, Sophie investigates how observers attempt to infer properties of manipulated objects when the stimulus consists of nothing but a full-body animation of the performer. More specifically, using motion capture and virtual reality environment, Sophie looks […]
Christoph is a Ph.D. student in psychology studies at the University of Giessen in Germany. He has a background in biomechanics, motor control and motion analysis. Christoph visits the biomotion lab from January to April 2018. At the moment he works on perceptual differences between pictorial and egocentric space in Virtual Reality.
Rebecca is 4th year undergraduate biology student in our lab. She is looking at motion capture with large spiders and creating various simulations, to explore connections gravity may have to the “life detector” and possible phobias.
Undergraduate student in Computer Engineering, working as a SWEP student for the summer of 2017. Michael was working primarily on programming and expanding the development of MATLAB software, as well as assisting with other programming projects in the lab.
Sage, an NSERC student for the summer of 2017, is a recent graduate of Queen’s with a specialization in Biology and Psychology. Sage has helped with several research projects and in helping to organize information in the lab. Sage also ran an experiment developing upon the work done by Zhong Li.
Noam McGregor is a 4th year computing student. For his undergraduate thesis project, he is working to develop a set of web applications that will modernize the essential Bio Motion Lab tools.
Dean Rosen (Sept. 2017- ) is an undergraduate student in the lab and works on his 4th year thesis project. His main project is to identify the perceptual differences between pictorial and visual spaces. The purpose of his study is to measure and compare the differential perception of depth compression in pictorial and visual space […]
Oliver Jacobs (Sept. 2017- ) is an undergraduate student in the lab and works on his 4th year thesis project. His main project is to identify the perceptual differences between pictorial and visual spaces. The purpose of my project is to directly compare the perceptual disparities between visual and pictorial space by using innovative methodologies involving […]
Joseph is a 4th year undergraduate in the School of Computing who is currently completing his undergraduate thesis. He is working with new technology for capturing human motion and developing software for integrating it into the lab’s research.
Nelly Matorina (since Sept 2015 – May 2016): She did her 4th year Honour’s thesis in biomotion lab. Now she is an Msc student in Jordan Poppenk’s lab.
Zhong Li (on and off for a long time): She was an undergraduate student between Psychology and the Cognitive Science program of the School of Computing. She has been extremely helpful as a research assistant in the lab over the last two years. Zhong is now designing and running her own experiments on serial dependencies […]
Jae Moon (Sept 2016-Sept2017 ): Works on his 4th year thesis project which is, similar to Seamas Weech’s work, focusing on ways to alleviate simulator sickness in virtual realities. He is now a master student at university of Toronto.
Fabian Helm (multiple visits between 2014 and 2016): Fabian’s home university is in Giessen, Germany. As a member of the International Graduate School “The Brain in Action”, he spent time in the BioMotion Lab to learn some advanced techniques on motion analysis and developed psychophysical experiments. He will defend his PhD very shortly and will […]
After spending the summer 2016 as an NSERC Undergraduate Summer Research Student in the lab, she is now volunteering to help Sophie Kenny with her research project. She knows everything about the pipeline from raw motion capture data to the rendering of sophisticated individualized avatars in virtual reality.
