A few of my projects.

GazeMetrics: An Open source tool for monitoring data quality of HMD based eye trackers

An open-source tool for real-time monitoring of the spatial data quality of VR/AR HMD based eye trackers.

Foveated FOV Restriction

In this project, I developed a novel gaze contingent (foveated) field-of-view (FOV) restrictor that blocks the peripheral visual field while still allowing the user to experience the full view in VR.

VR, Eye Tracking & Machine Learning based Vestibular/Ocular Motor Screening

In this project we are developing VR, eye tracking and machine learning based Vestibular/Ocular Motor Screening (VOMS) tools for automated and objective diagnosis of sports related concussion.

Eye Gaze Prediction

In this project I developed recurrent convolutional neural network based models to predict a person's eye gaze 50ms into the future, based on past spatio-temporal data, for Facebook's OpenEDS 2020 challenge.

The effect of FOV restriction on VR sickness and spatial navigation performance and its interaction with sex

In a series of projects (and publications) we investigate the effect of field-of-view (FOV) restriction on sex bias in VR sickness and spatial navigation performance.

VR Navigation with Full Body Tracking

3PP virtual locomotion using full-body skeletal tracking with a single depth camera (Azure Kinect) and an Oculus headset.

NLP Tools for Tigrinya

I have conducted preliminary research and developed experimental models for Neural Machine Translation for Tigrinya (my native language) and published my research through a pre-print here. I have also collaborated with researchers at UNR exploring vowel duration and phonological contrast of vowel duration in Tigrinya.

Development of Digital Learning Tools for Tigrinya Speakers

In collaboration with Binogi international, I have adapted, localized and produced more than 1250 animated video lessons and interactive quizzes for Tigrinya speakers.

Authored Books

As a speaker of a very low resourced language - Tigrinya - I grew up without access to reading materials, especially during the early child hood years. To alleviate this problem, I have worked with some authors to adapt children's books to Tigrinya. You can check on Amazon some of the recently published storybooks here and here.
