Sungchul Jung completes Ph.D., with dissertation: Personalized Digital Body: Enhancing Body Ownership and Spatial Presence in Virtual Reality


A person’s sense of acceptance of a virtual body as his or her own is generally called virtual body ownership. Having such a mental model of one’s own body transferred to a virtual human surrogate is known to play a critical role in one’s sense of presence in a virtual environment. The focus of this dissertation is on top-down processing based on visually personalized body cues.

Congratulations to Sungchul for completing your Ph.D.

Sungchul will graduate from the University of Central Florida on May 3rd, 2018.
