Uli Meyer

Postgraduate Researcher CSTI / FTZ SMSY

Uli is lead environment and UX designer for the ongoing research project “VR/MR/AR training for offshore wind turbine technicians”, in cooperation with EnBW, a major German energy provider. Her research interests include best practices for VR/MR environments and hand interactions for training purposes in engineering.

Further research interests are environment and surface perception in VR, and passive haptics. Her published work contains a framework for VR environments that integrates neuroscientific research on sensory completion with perceptual design theory.

Uli has a background in game design and 3D modelling, and holds a MA in Media Technology for Games. To create photorealistic 3D environments in real time engines, she works with photogrammetry and physics based rendering.
