Hey, welcome to my awesome computer science site. It has a lot of cool stuff to do... I know you'll spend countless hours here.
I am a 5th(?) year Ph.D. student. I am slowly trying to find a dissertation topic, so any suggestions are welcome. Currently, I have been doing a lot of research in real-time chromakey identification using noisy cameras (worse than webcams) to apply it to head mounted display technology. I've also explored topics in both realistic audio and graphics rendering applied to mixed reality.
Other interests include post object-oriented programming languages (which is a almost a winner simply because it spells POOP languages, a fitting offspring for OOP), software design (anything to promote modular use without creating millions of classes or complicated special purpose implementations), virtual audio material design, audio cue processing by virtual objects (virtual entities capable of reacting to human audio cues, direct commands or unintentional noise), machine learning based on mathematic models (ie, deriving formulas and minimizing the error with E-M), and algorithms (including randomized variants). I also like anything with math, physics, music theory, graph theory, game technologies, etc.
Anyways, enjoy the rest of my awesome site.
