Who are we?

Welcome to the Virtual Experiences Research Group (VERG) at the University of Florida. Our goal is to develop interpersonal skills by interacting with virtual humans. We are always looking for undergraduates, graduates, and research collaborators, so please check out our projects and our amazing team! Below is our mission and vision statement:


We want to improve how humans communicate with each other by creating virtual experiences that improve peoples’ communication skills, training, and health.


VERG Lab seeks to inspire human-centered computing research using virtual experiences to provide a positive impact in all fields, from social to medical, and foster positive social change.
