The main theme of my research over my career has been the interaction between people and computers and how digital media can be used to communicate between people. I have a strong interest in interactive 3-D graphics and the production of graphics hardware that reproduces all of our visual cues. This has lead to research in light field displays and computational holography.

Over my career I have worked in many different areas including aspects of computer graphics, user interfaces, software engineering and computer security. I established the first Virtual Reality (VR) laboratory in Canada while I was at the University of Alberta in 1986. This laboratory had the first HMD in Canada along with the first CAVE. We also developed the first open source VR package; the MR Toolkit that was distributed to several thousand researchers world wide.
