Regis Kopper, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Information Science + Studies and Associate of the Duke Initiative for Science & Society

Regis Kopper

Dr. Regis Kopper is an Adjunct Assistant Research Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering and the director of the Duke immersive Virtual Environment (DiVE). Dr. Kopper has experience in the design and evaluation of virtual reality systems in the areas of interaction design and modeling, virtual human interaction and in the evaluation of the benefits of immersive systems. At Duke, Dr. Kopper investigates how immersive virtual reality technology and experiences can benefit different domain areas, such as archeology, health care, engineering, psychology and neuroscience. His research interests include 3D user interfaces, novel interaction techniques and immersive display systems. Dr. Kopper is a recipient of the best paper award in the IEEE Symposium in 3D User Interfaces and was a member of the first team to be awarded the IEEE 3D User Interfaces Grand Prize. His research has been funded by the DoD, NSF, NIH, FAPESP (Brazil) and CNPq (Brazil). Dr. Kopper received his B.A. and M.S. from the Pontifical Catholic University in Porto Alegre, Brazil and his Ph.D. from Virginia Tech.
