Christopher joined Merrimack in the Fall 2012. He received his Ph. D. in June, 2012 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY in the area of Computer Graphics. He graduated with a B.A. in Computer Science and Mathematics from Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts in 2007.
Christopher’s research is in the areas of Geographic Information Systems and Human-Computer Interaction. His work revolves around exploring the mathematics of terrain data through new terrain representations and statistical analysis, and he has authored several publications in both computer science and civil engineering. He has also helped design a group collaborative problem solving system involving identification of inexpensive, off-the-shelf laser pointers using their unique IR signatures.
