Dr. Alison Jane Martingano recently published her research on the impact of demographic variables on the experience of ‘presence’ in virtual reality (VR) which she conducted with collaborators at the National Institutes of Health. This research discovered that Black VR users generally experience a higher sense of presence in VR environments than White users. Dr. Martingano continues to conduct research fostering a diverse and inclusive understanding of new technologies in her Social Research Lab on UW-Green Bay’s Green Bay Campus.
