Iulian is pursuing a PhD in Human Centered Computing within the Augmented Environments Lab at Georgia Tech. His research is focused on the design of augmented reality (AR) applications for elementary-school children. He is specifically interested in using developmental psychology to design age-appropriate AR applications that match, as well as improve, children's cognitive and motor abilities. Currently he is involved in designing and evaluating AR games for elementary-school children. His previous projects include AR Spot (an AR authoring environment based on Scratch), Puppy Plus (an AR game for teaching elementary mathematics), and Thought Play (an AR environment for constructing immersive mind-maps).
