Brian Goldiez, PhD
Brian Goldiez, PhD, has been active in a wide range of modeling and simulation research for over 30 years. He is a member of the Modeling and Simulation faculty, Deputy Director of IST, and holds a joint appointment in Industrial Engineering and Management Systems. He directed pioneering work in using higher order computer languages in training systems, the use of texture in computer graphics systems, developing distributed simulation approaches, and the use of PC graphics systems for simulators. Dr. Goldiez is currently involved in research using wearable computers in virtual and augmented reality, and mathematical methods for recognizing emergent behavior of human agent teams. He is also involved in using high performance computing for certain simulation problems. Generally, his research work involves assessment methods to gain better insights and direction in technological and human performance in modeling and simulation.
