Biography

As a PhD student in Human-Centered Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Steven Dow’s research focused on HCI, novel media experiences, user engagement, and design tools for supporting creativity. With his advisor Dr. Blair MacIntyre, Steven helped develop the Designer’s Augmented Reality Toolkit, an enhancement to Macromedia Director to support video, high-precision tracking, GPS, and other sensors. Steven has guided the production efforts for several physically embodied narrative experiences, including the “Voices of Oakland” audio tour in an historic cemetery in Atlanta and “AR Façade”, an AR version of the critically acclaimed interactive drama written in 2005 by Mateas and Stern. He received his MS in Human-Computer Interaction from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2004 and his BS in Industrial Engineering at the University of Iowa in 1999.
