Markus Santoso holds a Ph.D. degree from Dongseo University, South Korea. His main research interests are Augmented and Virtual Reality, Wearable Technologies, NUI, UX/UI, and Serious-game Development. He graduated in 2013 and went to Erfurt, Germany to continue his research as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Fraunhofer IDMT under a funding scheme from the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM). To enter this fellowship program, Markus needed to compete with more than 300 PhDs worldwide; only 24 applications were approved. As an ERCIM fellow, Markus had the opportunity to visit other well-known European research institutes as research intern such as INRIA MimeTIC at Rennes-France with a focus on VR and at VTT in Espoo-Finland doing research in AR. After that, Markus conducted his 2nd postdoctoral with the LINDSAY Virtual Human Lab at the University of Calgary, Canada. He received an Eyes-high Postdoctoral fellowship and worked on the implementation of AR/MR for human anatomy illustration, medical education, and computational physiology. Markus also had several industrial experiences with AR/VR-related startup companies in various capacities such as Hololens Developer at Wellness Computation in Calgary, Canada and Head of Department of Licensing and Gamification Department at Octagon Studio. Starting from July 2018 Markus starts his tenure-track position at University of Florida.
