Using virtual reality as a tool for improving wind energy visualization
Nicholas Giudice, School of Computing and Information Science
Dr Giudice will discuss the use of virtual reality as a tool for improving wind energy visualization. The seminar will explore the progress of one of SSI’s Emerging Opportunities projects led by Nicholas Giudice, School of Computing & Information Science in collaboration with Mario Teisl, School of Economics, Caroline Noblet, School of Economics, and Shannon McCoy, Dept. of Psychology.
Dr. Giudice is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Spatial Information Science and Engineering at UMaine and the Director of the Virtual Environment and Multimodal Interaction (VEMI) Laboratory. His research combines expertise in perception, cognitive neuroscience and human factors engineering using an integrative approach he calls neurocognitive engineering. One line of studies investigates functional equivalence and multimodal spatial cognition: how we learn, represent, and act in space using different input modalities (visual, tactile, 3-D audio, and spatial language).
