Misha is a PhD student working on machine learning, specifically computer vision based mechanisms to automatically create VR environments. She is investigating ways to bring redirected walking and new user safety techniques to room-scale VR. This includes exploring methods for altering user perception both visually as well as through direct manipulation of the vestibular system using Galvanic Vestibular Stimulation (GVS). Here are some of her VR Projects and more.

Hugo Masclet is a visiting student working with Xin Liu on projects including EMG sensors and pattern recognition. Before joining MIT, he has studied at the Lycée Sainte-Geneviève (Versailles) and at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers (Paris), majoring in Mechanical and Industrial engineering. He has a special interest in cyber-physical systems, especially process control systems and smart factories. In September, he will complete his master degree at CentraleSupélec.
