    Associate Professor Bernhard Riecke joined Simon Fraser University in 2008 after receiving his PhD from Tübingen University and the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics and working as a postdoctoral fellow at Vanderbilt University and the Max Planck Institute.
    His research approach combines fundamental scientific research with an applied perspective of improving humancomputer interaction. For example, he uses multidisciplinary research approaches and immersive virtual environments to investigate what constitutes effective, robust, embodied and intuitive human spatial cognition, orientation and behaviour as well as presence and immersion. This fundamental knowledge is used to guide the design of novel, more effective human-computer interfaces and interaction paradigms that enable similarly effective processes in computer-mediated environments such as virtual reality, immersive gaming, and multimedia.

    Bernhard E. Riecke is an assistant professor at SIAT, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada, and associate member of the SFU cognitive Science Program. He is one of the leading experts on self-motion illusion and its implementation in immersive Virtual Reality, regard to natural embodied spatial perception, cognition, and behavior. Rieckes scholarship  is exemplified by more than 70 peer reviewed papers/book chapters, including four best  paper awards (ACM IEEE conferences).
