Biography

Robert LiKamWa is an assistant professor at Arizona State University, appointed in the School of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME) and the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering (ECEE).

LiKamWa directs Meteor Studio, which explores the research and design of software and hardware for mobile Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality, and visual computing systems, and their ability to help people tell their stories. To this end, Meteor Studio’s research and design projects span three arcs: (i) advanced visual capture and processing systems, (ii) systems for hybrid virtual-physical immersion through augmentation of senses, and (iii) design frameworks for data-driven augmented reality and virtual reality storytelling and sensemaking.

Prior to coming to ASU, LiKamWa completed his bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees at Rice University in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He has also interned at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington and in Beijing, China, Samsung Mobile Processor Innovation Lab in Richardson, Texas, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado.
