Deltcho Valtchanov is a postdoctoral research fellow with a background in virtual reality, human visual perception, and cognitive and behavioural neuroscience. His past research has focused on how low level visual information influences emotional responses to, and aesthetics of, visual scenes. His current projects are focused on exploring how visual processing of scenes and user interfaces may influence the aesthetics and coherence of interactive media. He is also exploring how digital archives may be "gamified" to tell interactive stories. Deltcho is currently cross appointed with the UW Touchlab and UW Games Institute, and has previously worked at the Research Lab for Immersive Environments (RE.L.I.V.E.).
