"His final project was exemplary primarily because it combined expert analysis from three different domains: one being issues related to constitutional law and sovereignty of First Nations, one being the business of delivery of medical services in Canada and the third being the development of a business strategy in light of the changing legal landscape with regard to privatized medical services...His contribution was both timely and impactful to our First Nations communities."

I am an electrical and electronics engineerings with a minor degree in computer engineering. I have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Strasbourg. I am currently working on human-computer interaction and virtual and augmented reality.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

To work with my current supervisor, Wolfgang Stuerzlinger. He is a world-wide known researcher in 3D User Interfaces, he is an expert on Human-Computer Interaction and he has deep knowledge of Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR).

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

I am trying to understand how virtual environments affect our brain or body so that I can help people to use these virtual environment technologies as a part of their daily life.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

I like working with people coming from different academic backgrounds, such as cognitive psychology or brain-computer interaction. SFU is a wonderful place where I can quickly contact and start working with people from different backgrounds.
