Steerable simulations for collective sense-making
Dr. Mechtley develops and researches the use of steerable real-time, simulations of complex systems using whole-body interaction and manipulation of tangible objects and architecture for collaborative research and sense-making. This work is carried out in collaboration with an international transdisciplinary network, Participatory Steering of Complex Adaptive Systems, with members working in the United Kingdom, India, Southeast Asia, Australia, Mexico, and Japan. Prior to ASU, Mechtley’s research focused on developing computational models for the study of ecological systems and machine listening models for large-scale analysis of acoustic environments.
