Senior Research Artist, Computer Science Laboratory
Christian Greuel is a senior research artist in SRI’s Computer Science Laboratory, with a focus on visual computing. He joined SRI in 2009 to lead the Geovisualization Center, which developed high-fidelity virtual terrain in support of the eXportable Combat Training Capability (XCTC), an innovative live training program of the U.S. Army National Guard.
Greuel led a two-year effort to prototype the Semantically Enabled Automated Assessment in Virtual Environments (SAVE) framework for the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative. He was also a key contributor to the National Training and Education Resource (NTER) and eLearning for Lighting and Daylighting (eLAD) platforms, both developed for the U.S. Department of Energy.
His areas of applied research include design of tools, techniques and processes for representing and interacting with 3D virtual environments; geo-referenced terrain; systematized digital content; data visualization; and spatial audio. Prior to joining SRI, Greuel held creative management positions at several startup firms, working in the fields of virtual reality, visual simulation and virtual worlds. He was awarded a U.S. patent as co-inventor of a virtual reality glove system.
He earned a M.F.A. degree in performing arts design and technology from the California Institute of the Arts. His B.F.A. is from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
