Instructional and Research Activities

Senior Research Scientist in the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences - New York University 2019 - present. previously Senior Research Scientist in theRory Meyers College of Nursing at New York University 9-2014 to 8-2019

The NYU-X Informatics Lab and NYU Holodeck project

The NYU-X lab, located in the new College of Nursing building at 433 First Avenue, is a catalyst to engage faculty, staff and students to explore emerging technologies, and how the interaction of humans and technology can support teaching, lifelong learning, and innovative health care.

The NYU Holodeck is a $4M ($2.8M plus $1.2M cost share) NSF MRI Track 2 Development project (#126098) that will create an immersive, collaborative, virtual/ physical research environment.

To prototype the transition from projection to functional AR, MR and VR simulations, our interdisciplinary team will develop an instrument and educational environment that facilitates enticing research and creates an experiential supercomputing infrastructure that empowers students, faculty, and researchers to develop new knowledge and disseminate powerful new integrated, multimodal tools and techniques.

The NYU Holodeck will be a well-integrated software/hardware instrument that fosters creative capacity by incorporating:
     - Visual, audio, and physical components;
     - Novel technologies to enhance human-human, human-agent, and human-robot social interactions;
     - Rapid prototyping and fabrication tools,
     - Tightly coupled interactive visual, audio, and physical experiences.

The NYU Holodeck instrument will:
     -Provide a flexible, modular, reconfigurable infrastructure with comprehensive capacity to capture behavioral, 
      physiological, affective, and cognitive data, and provide real time data visualization and analysis.
     - Enable researchers to explore questions involving virtual environments, telepresence, collaborative
      engagement, and remote interaction.
     -Advance next-generation experiences in human interaction
     -Provide deep integration of virtual and physical settings.
     - Potentially transform fundamental understanding of collaboration, learning, creativity, discovery and

Our interdisciplinary project team includes expertise in computer science, health-informatics, gaming, digital media, design engineering, and educational technology.

Transition to Emeritus Faculty at Arizona State University in July 2011

School of Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering (SCIDSE) at Arizona State University - Launched September 29, 2006

The School of Computing and Informatics (SCI) at Arizona State University (ASU) supported the evolution of computing and informatics as discrete disciplines. The school responded to needs for partnership and collaboration between computer and information sciences and a broad range of disciplinary areas at ASU. This integration of computer and information sciences with other academic disciplines such as geography, anthropology, public health, urban planning and biology was developed to provide an academic structure to foster new knowledge.

The school was home to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and the Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI). The CSE department offered undergraduate degrees in computer science and computer systems engineering and an M.S., M.C.S. and Ph.D. in computer science. The BMI department offered both an M.S. degree and a Ph.D and was initially a collaboration with the University of Arizona Medical School in Phoenix. The School was reorganized in 2010 into the School of Computing Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering and the Biomedical Informatics department realigned with the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale.

Executive Associate Director 2005 - 2009

Institute for Computing and Information Sciences and Engineering

The Institute for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (InCISE) is a collaboration of interdisciplinary research units that share research expertise in Computer and Information Science and its application to research problems in academic disciplines and in our communities.

Associate Director 2003 - 2009

Partnership for Research in Spatial Modeling (PRISM) at Arizona State University (ASU)

PRISM is the focal point at Arizona State University for interdisciplinary research in modeling and visualization to permit intelligent analysis and create spatial and dynamic knowledge.

Co-Director 2000 - 2011

Decision Theater at Arizona State University

The Decision Theater at Arizona State University is a forum for discussing research and policy questions, identifying common needs, interests, and scenarios to better understand complex, multivariate relationships. Data from experiments, or existing data sources, will be analyzed and modeled to create scientific visualizations to explore patterns, relationships, and implications of actions related to the scenarios.

Decision Center for Desert Cities
The Decision Center for a Desert City (DCDC) is one of several new National Science Foundation-funded centers to investigate human decision making under climatic uncertainty. Increasingly, it is recognized that even the best science will not significantly reduce uncertainty about global climate warming and the climate cycles that cause droughts, floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes. Society must learn to make better decisions in the face of uncertainty. DCDC was founded to focus on water management decisions in the urbanizing desert of Central Arizona.
