XR Software Developer

Why I Choose to Work at Academic Innovation

I joined the Center for Academic Innovation as an XR software developer because it offers a unique opportunity to work at the intersection of design, emerging technology, computer science and education. As a web developer turned creative technologist, this integration of multi-disciplinary fields is exactly what I was looking for. I explored the field of XR during my Master’s program. I immediately fell in love with the wonders this technology can do. At Academic Innovation I look forward to creating many impactful XR experiences for the university and sharing my passion for XR with everyone.
