VR Developer, Researcher, Hacker, Archer
Hi, I'm Alvin! As a graduating 4th year at UCLA, I'm interested in software development
for technologies related to virtual and augmented realities (VR/AR).
5 years ago, I received my pre-order of the Oculus Rift DK1. Since then, my passion for VR/AR has only grown, motivating me
to pursue all sorts of projects in these fields.
During my time at UCLA, I was a programmer and research assistant for two psychology labs
, where I investigated
neurological markers of human intelligence, observed the effects of learning in VR, and
used VR to study the visual illusions that occur with tilted rooms.
I'm currently starting a VR production company
that creates highly interactive story-driven VR games, as well as immersive experiences for trade shows, commercials, training programs. Our mission is to use VR as a medium to tell immersive stories that can change the way people view the world.
I also mentor at and participate in hackathons
, where my teams and I have built really cool projects, like
a mind-controlled car, full-body VR, AR search, heart rate-based FPS, and more!
In my free time, I shoot arrows
, teach kids how to code
, and play video games.
