Research Interests

Greg has a high interest in Game programming and teaches three courses in this much sought after skill of entering students. He is involved in Robotics and teaches an introductory class and is developing a second course in this high interest and in demand field. He has also been involved in research revolving around 3 Dimensional Stereo projections using a passive polarization technique which involves dual DLP projectors and special polarized glasses that restrict the vision of each eye to the output of one of the projectors. Each projector show a slightly offset image of a scene or image and our brain is tricked into seeing this image or scene in three dimensions. As is usual, technology has changed and we can now use one projector to do the same image shifting as two projectors did in the past. He plans a demonstration of this at this year’s SOAR (Southern Oregon Art and Research) event in the Spring. He currently is serving as Department Chair.
