Peter Willemsen’s research interests include perception and computer graphics, simulation, and environment representation for virtual environments. He runs the Virtual Environment Interaction and Simulation at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. The lab equipment provides an interactive, immersive experience in which people are able to walk around using their own locomotive abilities in a simulated 3D space.

Willemsen has a Ph.D. from the University of Iowa.
