Oliver Schneider leads the Haptic Computing Lab as an Assistant Professor at the University of Waterloo (Faculty of Engineering, Department of Management Sciences).
Ludwig Wilhelm Wall (BA and MA in IT-Systems Engineering) is a PhD candidate supervised by Daniel Vogel and Oliver Schneider. He is interested in the application of haptic sensations in Virtual Reality (VR) environments, and what influence Fabrication methods can have on the ephemeral nature of games.
Pelisha is interested in Human-computer interaction (HCI), user experience (UX) design, and software development. Her research focuses on how we can create and manage large collections of haptic content.
Marco is a Master’s student in Systems Design Engineering under the supervision of Professors Mark Hancock and Oliver Schneider at University of Waterloo. Previously, he completed a B.S. in Mechatronics Engineering (2015) at Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM) in Mexico and a postgraduate diploma in Automation and Robotics (2017) at Centennial College in Toronto.
Erin is currently completing her BA in Honours Psychology at the University of Waterloo. Her research within the lab focuses on exploring user interactions with haptic technology to identify and define the factors that create a positive Haptic Experience (HX).
Co-supervised by Professors Krzysztof Czarnecki and Oliver Schneider, Nicole pursued her masters in Computer Science with a research focus on passenger-vehicle interaction in the context of autonomous vehicles.
Bibhushan is a PhD candidate in the Management Science Department. His background is in Computer Engineering and Management. He is excited to get involved in some interesting projects, explore new ideas and make new friends along the way
Tanay (he/him) is a fourth year computer science student at the University of Waterloo. His interest lies at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Machine Learning. He is currently researching computer-generated designs for haptics.
Suji is a Master's student in the Management Sciences Department. She is interested in data-driven product design and development. Her research is based on developing a tool to evaluate Haptics experience.
Diana is interested in applications of haptics in medicine. She is a third-year undergraduate student pursuing a BSc in Biology at the University of Waterloo. Her research focuses on hand receptors involved in the haptic experience. She hopes to build online simulations to help designers better design haptic products
