Past President, CS-Can|Info-Can
Ontario Tech University
The focus of Dr. Green’s research has been the interaction between people and computers and how digital media can be used to communicate between people. He has a strong interest in interactive 3-D graphics and the production of graphics hardware that reproduces all of our visual cues. This has led to research in light field displays and computational holography.
Dr. Green has worked in many different areas including aspects of computer graphics, user interfaces, software engineering and computer security. He established the first Virtual Reality (VR) laboratory in Canada while at the University of Alberta in 1986. This laboratory had the first HMD in Canada along with the first CAVE and also developed the first open-source VR package – the MR Toolkit that was distributed to several thousand researchers worldwide.
Research interests include interactive 3D graphics, automatic construction of user interfaces, authoring tools for virtual environments, computer animation, formal design methods for user interfaces, graphics display hardware and VLSI design.
