The University of Virginia

David is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Graphics, Visualization, and Usability Center in the College of Computing. He works in the Animation Lab at Georgia Tech. His current research includes creating dynamic simulations and developing Group Behaviors for Virtual Environments.

Animated characters are needed to play the role of teachers or guides, teammates or competitors, or just to provide a source of interesting motion in virtual environments. For a virtual environment to be compelling, the characters must have a wide variety of complex and interesting behaviors and must be responsive to the actions of the user. The difficulty of constructing such synthetic characters currently hinders the development of these environments, particularly when realism is required. My research projects utilize dynamic simulations as a source of realistic character motion to improve the suitability of physically simulated characters for virtual environments.
