Maryam Saberi is a doctoral student in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) at Simon Fraser University. At the iVizLab her PhD research investigates the computational models of cultural expression and creativity including how these models can be used in interactive vizualization systems.
Our lab has extensive experience in using different sensing technology including eye tracking and facial emotion recognition (DiPaola et al 2013), as well as gesture tracking and heart rate and EDA bio sensing (Song & DiPaola, 2015) to affect generative computer graphics systems. These bio-feedback systems can be used to further understand the body’s reception to generated stimulus (photos, video, VR). They can also be used in conjuncture with other systems such as physical testing and psychological evaluation to help visualize the body’s systems and responses.
