My name is Samantha Merritt, and I am a sophomore studying Digital Media and Design in the Computer Science Department at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania. I plan to graduate in the spring of 2014.

This summer, I am working with Professor Victoria Interrante, a professor of Computer Science at the University of Minnesota, and Ella Coben, a freshman from Lewis and Clark College, to develop and run an experiment in the field of virtual reality.
