List of current and previous talks and appearances

My talks center around virtual reality and augmented reality and the use of immersive technologies for work and education.

Learn how farmers use AR glasses to navigate animal data, how mechanics work together remotely to do repairs on complex systems, and how future nurses train in virtual reality to prepare for work in a warzone. My talks will give you an overview over the possibilities and the benefits of XR technologies in many different work and training situations.
