Research Spotlight

The School was delighted to host Masakazu Ohara, an international research intern who worked with Dr Juno Kim for six weeks over the summer break. Masakazu is currently in the process of completing his undergraduate studies in Computer Science and Engineering at Toyohashi University of Technology (TUT) in Japan. During his time here, he learned about 3D graphical modelling and simulation and began to lead an ongoing research project with Dr Kim looking at the perception of surfaces and materials in virtual environments.

The research he conducted whilst at UNSW was presented at the Innovative "SHITSUKAN" Science and Technology conference held in Tokyo (6-8 March). A subsequent presentation of his work will be delivered at the Experimental Psychology Conference (EPC) in April this year.
