Dr Sylvia Xueni Pan

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Virtual Reality at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I co-lead the Goldsmiths Computing MA/MSc in Virtual and Augmented Reality, and the SeeVR Lab. My Coursera VR Specialisation has over 40,000 registered learners internationally. My research interest lies in the area of Virtual Reality technology and its applications in the areas of social neuroscience, psychology, training, and therapy.

I was a research fellow at the Hamilton Lab at Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN), UCL and also the Virtual Environments and Computer Graphics group (VECG), Computer Science, UCL where I remain an Honorary Research Fellow.

I received my PhD in Virtual Reality in 2009, at UCL, with Professor Mel Slater. It was fully funded by EPSRC and the Rabin Ezra Scholarship. I have an MSc in Vision, Imaging, and Virtual Environments (VIVE) from UCL 2004-5.

I moved to London in 2004 from Beijing where I grew up. I have an BEng in Computer Science from Beihang University. I attended Beijing Jingshan School and Beijing No.4 High School.
