Theodore Yu, Directed Studies Student and Research Assistant

Hi! I am a Directed Studies Student at the MI lab. Last year I had the experience of being involved in graduate student Omran Safi’s Virtual Reality (VR) study that measured people’s memories under the VR setting. Back in April 2023, I started my Directed Studies project under Omran’s supervision, diving into a new project, called “VR-SAS”. Here, our final goal is to create a database of VR objects that researchers worldwide can pull from. This will save other researchers time from learning photogrammetry softwares, rendering objects, but more importantly, this database will provide VR experiments with a high internal validity. Outside of the lab, I am a professional content creator, photographer, and videographer. I enjoy hiking, road tripping, and eating!
