EVENT Lab (Experimental Virtual Environments for Neuroscience and Technology)

Research in the field of immersive virtual reality with applications for various types of rehabilitation. A specific interest is to use virtual reality in the science of how the brain represents the body, and how the type of body influences our implicit biases, attitudes and how we think and act. This is put into practice in our company Virtual Bodyworks, of which I'm one of the three Founders.
