Corey Shum directs the Immersive Experience Lab (IXL) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). He leads a cross-functional team of artists, developers, engineers, and programmers that develop application modules employing immersive virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed-reality (MR) artificial experience technologies. His mission is to enable research and collaborations that can benefit from immersive participant experiences. Current research topics include neuropathic pain, the psychology of embodiment, vestibular rehabilitation, remote physical therapy, and AR display of real-time medical imaging. Corey also directs development of novel and domain-specific devices for real-time human metric tracking and response, including body position, physiology, and attention.
