Christopher Curry, a doctoral student in the School of Kinesiology, has been awarded a renewal of his NSF-funded fellowship based on his strong interest in interdisciplinary research. Curry received a 2018-19 NSF-funded fellowship last year. This 2019-20 award will continue to fund his new research focusing on cybersickness in virtual reality.
The NSF-funded fellowship is awarded through the Center for Cognitive Sciences and the Center for Applied and Translational Sensory Science. The 12-month stipend of $34,000 provides comprehensive funding through the center’s training grant titled “NRT-UtB: Graduate training program in sensory science: Optimizing the information available for mind and brain.”
Thomas Stoffregen, PhD, professor of movement science in the School of Kinesiology and Victoria Interrante, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering are serving as Curry’s fellowship mentors.
