Welcome to the AP Lab!

Lab Culture
In the AP Lab, we believe that creating an atmosphere that is inclusive of socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender, religion, and ethnicity brings a variety of opinions to the table and in turn generates better, more creative science. More diverse voices ensure that the scientific and technological advancements we work on can profit all members of society.  We strive to ensure that the composition of the AP Lab and the collaborations we foster reflect the diversity that exists in our society. We aim to create a culture of equality that we believe makes our lab stronger, more innovative and better placed to solve problems that will benefit society as a whole and not specific individuals.

In the AP Lab we work on developing methods to enhance perception of computer generated images. Novel visualization techniques, display devices and interaction paradigms are explored to enrich the users experience in specific scenarios and workflows. Current research topics include:

  • Augmented reality visualization
  • Enhancing depth perception of computer generated images
  • Interaction techniques for better understanding of rendered images
  • Medical image processing and visualization
  • Auditory displays and data signification
  • Gaze-based interaction and eye-tracking
  • Study of push notifications on exercise motivation
  • Gamification for studying different visualization techniques
  • Federated and machine learning in medical imaging

The lab is headed by Dr. Kersten-Oertel who is a member of the PERFORM Centre and one of the editors of the ISCAS Newsletter and Blog.

Interested in how phone notifications can impact #exercise and #fitness. Have a look AP member Negar Haghbin's paper: https://dl.acm.org/doi/abs/10.1145/3406324.3417145

Great interview with @Concordia undergrad @DonyaMeshgin describing her #AR app for #MS patients! 👏Learn more about the research at: https://ap-lab.ca/sol-portfolio/multiple-sclerosis-image-guided-subcutaneous-injections-using-augmented-reality-guided-imagery/…

Needles can cause anxiety for some, especially those who need to take daily injection medication! But @Concordia undergraduate software engineering student @DonyaMeshgin is using augmented reality as a way to ease some of that fear. We speak with her on #LetsGo at 88.5 FM!

Check out AP Lab member @DonyaMeshgin's work on using augmented reality to ease injection anxiety and improve adverse effects in patients with MS!
