Personal profile

Biography

Tom Chandler is a senior lecturer in the Faculty of IT and coordinates the faculty's Interactive Media Major. Tom's research has focused upon the design and development of immersive simulations of the past, particularly the medieval Cambodian capital of Angkor. In the past three years, Tom has coordinated a small team of researchers at sensiLab to trial the evidence-based virtual reconstruction of the 12th century temple of Angkor Wat that simulates thousands of animated agents moving to, from and around the complex. The techniques and procedures involved in developing digital visions of the past have been similarly applied to collaborative research in other domains, such as the simulation of train passenger crowding, quantifying ecological constraints on vision-based behaviour, and the visualisation of indigenous narratives in the Monash Country Lines Archive.
