Dr. Hamza-Lup has a multi-disciplinary academic and industrial background. He began his career as a programmer, systems architect and later project manager for several European and U.S. software-hardware development companies. In 2001 he joined the Optical Diagnostics and Applications Laboratory at the Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers, the Florida Photonics Center of Excellence. Since he joined Optical Diagnostics and Applications Laboratory, his primary focus was the development of novel distributed applications based on Augmented Reality paradigms for the medical field, visualization tools and algorithms that enhance consistency in distributed interactive virtual environments. In 2003 Felix has been awarded the Link Foundation Fellowship in Advanced Simulation and Training and the Hillman Award for Distinguished Doctoral Research in Computer Science. His research interests include, distributed systems and applications, virtual and mixed reality environments, human computer interaction, optical motion tracking sensors and optical superimposition 3D displays. He presented papers and technical demonstrations at multiple international conferences and has published on subjects covering 3D visualization systems, augmented reality applications, distributed systems architectures and position/orientation tracking systems design. He has taught computer science courses focused on object oriented programming and distributed systems design. He is a member of the ACM, IEEE, SPIE and the International Honor Society for the Computing Sciences.
