Overview of current funded and self-funded research projects

Apologies: the website is slightly out of date. We received funding through the US Forest Service, a new Monash (Australia) – Penn State collaboration, and two major strategic plan projects. All projects are related to immersive technologies/experiences, stay tuned.

We have a portfolio that, too, is slightly out of date: portfolio.
