From Haptic Illusions in Virtual Reality to Beyond-Real Interactions
Bio: Parastoo Abtahi is a final year computer science PhD candidate and a Gerald J. Lieberman fellow at Stanford University, where she is co-advised by Prof. James Landay and Prof. Sean Follmer. Her research area is human-computer interaction (HCI) and she works broadly on virtual reality interactions and spatial computing. Her research has been published at top HCI venues, such as the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) and the ACM User Interface Software and Technology Symposium (UIST), and has received two honorable mention paper awards. Her work has been supported by the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence, the Hasso Plattner Design Thinking Research Program, and the VMware fellowship.
