Research Scientist, Harvard Graduate School of Education
Iulian Radu is a research scientist at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education. His research explores how augmented reality can enhance collaborative learning in digital fabrication maker spaces, where students use AR/MR to see invisible phenomena while interacting with physical objects. In parallel, his work on Virtual Reality explores how VR can reveal biases and generate empathy in teachers, parents and caretakers. Iulian holds a PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology focused on augmented reality for K-12 education, and has led XR education research initiatives while collaborating with PBS KIDS, MIT, Samsung Research, Qualcomm, WestEd Research, and other organizations. He is the founder of the IEEE Virtual Reality conference yearly workshop on K-12+ Embodied Learning through Virtual and Augmented Reality.
