The department of computer science is glad to welcome another RISE intern from our Canadian partner university in New Brunswick. Suzannah Smith is a third year bachelor student of computer science. She has chosen the coop programme of her course which takes a year longer than the usual bachelor and includes four stages at various companies.
At Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg Suzannah is working on a research project in the field of virtual reality: A virtual apartment is created which participants enter via a pair of VR glasses (Oculus Rift). Suzannah explores agent perception – she uses eye tracking to determine people’s focus and evaluates what participants look at and for how long.
Before joining us the young canadian took a two-week German course in Berlin and visited some European metropolises such as Zürich, Wien, Amsterdam and Paris. She will be working at H-BRS until August 18th. Her supervisors are Katharina Stollenwerk and Christoph Pomrehn as well as alumnus Sven Seele.
