Faculty Research Spotlight
He may be an expert in virtual reality, but Assistant Professor Dr. Jon Ericson’s work has very real implications for the future of health care and its study at Bentley University.
Dr. Ericson, who arrived at Bentley in January 2017, is the architect behind Bentley’s new virtual and augmented reality lab, where students and researchers are able to create, explore, and manipulate virtual environments. Virtual reality, as a still-evolving technology, has applications for myriad industries, from architecture to social interaction to industrial design. But the health care space is where Dr. Ericson sees significant potential.
