Cumhur Erkut (D.Sc. 2002, Helsinki University of Technology, FI) combines the theory and the methods of HCI and audio DSP for embodied and sonic interaction in XR at the Multisensory Experience Lab of Aalborg University Copenhagen, Denmark (https://melcph.create.aau.dk/). His recent investigations have conceptualized the ideation, programming, and evaluation skills involved in embodied learning of VR, which starts to impact how embodied and sonic interaction in VR are learned and taught.

In ME-Lab we work on virtual reality, augmented reality, and multisensory experiences, exploring the combination of different input and output modalities in interactive applications. We are interested in both development of novel hardware and software technologies as well as evaluation of users’ experiences. We apply our technologies to health, rehabilitation, training, learning and entertainment. We are particularly interested in researching topics related to sonic interaction design for multimodal environments, simulating walking experiences, sound rendering and spatialization, haptic interfaces, cinematic VR and evaluation of user experience in multimodal environments. Broadly speaking, the current and future work performed in the ME-Lab is centered on the use of immersive multisensory XR technologies in three broad categories: 1) Basic research, 2) Applied Research, 3) Arts & Culture.
