  • Biography

    James Baumeister is a AR/VR and human-computer interaction researcher at the University of South Australia’s (UniSA) Australian Research Centre for Interactive and Virtual Environments (IVE). Dr Baumeister’s research incorporates neurophysiological measures of human cognition and performance that stem from a background in both psychology and computer science. His primary interests are in exploring the cognitive impacts of using AR/VR, and brain-computer interfaces. After being awarded the Mike Miller medal for the most outstanding PhD thesis, Dr Baumeister undertook a postdoctural research fellowship at UniSA. During this fellowship, Dr Baumeister investigated how measured brain activity with EEG can be utilised in real time to distribute tasks to multiple people in a VR environment.
