Shih-Ching, "Luke", Yeh
Shih-Ching Yeh was born in Taiwan, R.O.C. He received his B.S and M.S degrees in Civil Engineering from National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) in 1994 and 1996 respectively. He served as a research assistant in National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering from 1996 to 2001 with research areas in "dynamic behavior analysis of structure" and "neural network simulation of life-lines". He received an M.S. degree of Integrated Media Systems (IMS) program and an M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering with multimedia specialization both from the University of Southern California (USC). Currently, he is a Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Science Department, Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. Now, his research interests are "human-computer interaction", "virtual reality", "motor rehabilitation", "cognitive rehabilitation" and "neuropsychology assessment".
He has worked with various forms of enabling technology that are required for the creation and delivery of immersive/interactive virtual environments. These have included a wide range of 3D computer graphics/animation (OpenGL, Open Inventor, 3DS Max, Unreal Game Engine), physics-based simulation, stereoscopic displays (HMD, Shutter glass systems, autostereoscopic screens), haptic devices (Cybergrasp, Phantom) and sensing systems (camera-based, magnetic). These enabling technologies have been employed to create virtual environments are being applied in the areas of motor rehabilitation, cognitive rehabilitation, neuropsychology assessment and telemedicine.
