Rose joined the iSpace lab in Spring 2022 as a MSc stu­dent. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at Amirkabir University of Technology. Her aca­d­e­mic jour­ney is marked by a deep inter­est in the inter­sec­tion of tech­nol­ogy and human expe­ri­ence, par­tic­u­larly within the realm of VR. Her research focuses on an explo­ration of VR sick­ness — a form of tra­di­tional motion sick­ness expe­ri­enced in VR tech­nolo­gies. She is driven to under­stand and alle­vi­ate the chal­lenges encoun­tered by users in VR, to iden­tify fac­tors that cause dis­com­fort and VR sick­ness in immer­sive envi­ron­ments, thereby enhanc­ing the user expe­ri­ence and com­fort during these expe­ri­ences and expand­ing the poten­tial appli­ca­tions of VR tech­nol­ogy in dif­fer­ent fields.




VR Sickness Benchmark System

Tackling VR Sickness: A Novel Benchmark System for Assessing Contributing Factors and Mitigation Strategies through Rapid VR Sickness Induction and Recovery Abstract This research introduces a novel VR sickness benchmark system, designed to address the lack of standardized tools for assessing and mitigating VR sickness. It aims to rectify the inconsistencies and limitations prev...
