Opportunities

Student Research

  • I enjoy working with undergraduate and graduate students on research and deeper dives into advanced computer science topics. I have worked with dozens of students on various research and development projects.
  • I am happy to guide undergraduate and graduate students towards opportunities in research. My research interests typically fall into human-computer interaction, 3D interaction, and virtual/augmented reality. I am happy to speak with you about research in these areas.
  • I strongly recommend that students apply for summer internships at companies, government institutions, and other universities. These are internships that pay you for your work, often provide a stipend for living expenses, and provide valuable job experience. The NSF REU program is one that I highly recommend.

Senior Capstone Projects

I am mentoring 2 capstone projects for Fall 2020. Please see the Capstone Senior Design Program page for more information.

Master's Projects and Theses

  • A Master's degree has a great return on investment when you consider the time required and the career benefit. A Master's degree allows you to follow your interests and develop your skills and knowledge more deeply. The CS graduate studies page is a good starting point to learn more about the MS program at Cal State LA.
  • My research interests typically fall into human-computer interaction, 3D interaction, and virtual/augmented reality. I am happy to speak with you about advising Master's projects and theses in these areas.
  • Unfortunately, Cal State LA does not have a PhD program in Computer Science.

Postdoctoral Research

  • I am happy to support and mentor Postdoctoral Researchers in my lab. However, I currently do not have any funding available for postdocs.

Sponsored Research

Opportunities to support the research and education of student researchers include:

  • Sponsoring Capstone Senior Design Projects
  • Unrestricted gifts to support research
  • Contracts or grants to support research on a topic or problem of mutual interest
  • Cooperative agreements to establish research collaborations

Please contact me for details.
