Aubrey Simonson

Object-Based Media
  • Research Assistant

Aubrey is a master’s student and research assistant in the Object-Based Media group. He is primarily interested in how people interact with 3D space and 3D data, especially in the context of virtual reality and storytelling. He is excited about virtual reality's potential applications as a more immersive and complete way for people to share their experiences with one another and as a tool for cultural preservation. His present work is on the grammar and conventions of storytelling and user interaction in virtual reality and volumetric displays.

As an undergraduate, he completed research with both Object-Based Media and Scalable Cooperation. He graduated Wellesley College as class of 2019, with B.A.s in both Media Arts and Sciences and Political Science, and worked as a Knapp Intern and the first tutor for CS 321: Mixed and Augmented Reality while he was there.

As a proud first generation college student, he welcomes emails from students and mentees about research and education.
