The Illusioneering Lab applies interdisciplinary theories from the cognitive and behavioral sciences to advance immersive technologies and create impactful mixed reality experiences.



Immersive technologies can create compelling illusions of being transported to a distant place or sharing space with someone who is not actually present.



Virtual and augmented reality provide new opportunities to study human perception and investigate phenomena that would be impossible to experience in the real world.



Interaction in virtual worlds is inherently spatial and embodied, with emerging applications in data analysis, education, health care, and entertainment.
