Aroaro Lab

The Team

Our distributed mixed-reality environment, Aroaro (Presence) enables decision-makers to interact simultaneously over a common visual display of abstract data while providing each participant with their own perspective of the dataset. The ability to “move” (walk or fly) through the data coupled with a query filtering and highlighting enhances a user’s perception of the information that can be revealed and used in analysis and deliberation. This is possible thanks to an excellent team. Human power is powerful.

Here’s the team:

David White

David is a cool guy. When he is not playing his electric bass guitar or swimming in the Hauraki harbor, he is planning the next cool thing in data visualisation. Heaps of experience and lots of hard work have made David the leader of Aroaro. We are happy he is showing us the way forward to make our system a top immersive analytics tool.

Fernando has been working on networks for a long time. Network optimisation, network pricing and more recently modelling network evolution. When he is not riding his bicycle up and down the Waitakeres, he can be found trying hard to make us understand what network data visualisation is and why it could become a strategic decision-making tool for business managers.
