Hi, I'm Jon.
Portrait of Jon

I'm a graduate student and assistant at the University of Maine at Orono studying Spatial Information Science and Engineering. My current research interests are in computer vision and augmented reality's potential for helping overcome difficulties with sensory perception.

I work at the Virtual Environment and Multimodal Interaction Laboratory, where I write software for virtual reality, augmented reality, and computer vision in research and interactive contexts. I work a lot with Unity and OpenCV. Visit About Me to learn more about what I know.

Some things I've worked on:

  • Kino - My graduate thesis project. A hardware and software project that provides an easy-to-use platform for creating and testing various augmented reality / computer vision techniques for use in an experimental setting.

  • Morpho - A creative drawing tool that uses Reaction-Diffusion systems to bring your doodles to life.

  • Shiro - A manga / comic reader for iOS

  • Virtual Reality Driving Simulator - I was awarded three consecutive Center for Undergraduate Research grants spanning two years to pursue this work, which sought to study the effects of Age-Related Macular Degeneration on driving ability. The work involved creating a VR driving simulator, as well as an automated test environment using this simulator that evaluates subject driving performance with and without simulated eye disease.
