I'm educated as an architect and employed as a software developer. My expensive hobby is space architecture: I wrote my doctoral dissertation on "The Architecture of Artificial-Gravity Environments for Long-Duration Space Habitation," and I continue to publish occasional conference papers on that subject. I work as an Advanced Visualization Specialist in the UM3D Lab, Digital Media Commons, Duderstadt Center, North Campus.
I have professional and doctoral degrees from the UM College of Architecture and Urban Planning (M.Arch. 1981, Arch.D. 1994), and more than 30 years experience in software development for computer-aided design, building information modeling, building analysis, scientific visualization, and virtual reality. After 14 years with the UM Architecture and Planning Research Laboratory, I spent 10 years with the Department of Architecture at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I returned to UM and joined the UM3D Lab in January 2009.
