Information Technology Advisors

Dr. Jerrold Prothero, Ph.D.

Dr. Jerrold Prothero is one of the few people world-wide with a Ph.D. in human-computer interfaces, earned through the Human Interface Technology Laboratory at the University of Washington. His Ph.D. research addressed fundamental issues in the design of advanced interfaces. Among other topics, he successfully demonstrated techniques for measuring the quality of virtual interfaces using psychophysics techniques and for reducing simulator sickness through visual background manipulations. His MSE in Interdisciplinary Engineering, also awarded through the HIT Lab, introduced a pioneering technique for using virtual images to treat Parkinson's Disease. This research has subsequently been the topic of  frequent televised documentaries. He holds BS degrees in Computer Science and Physics (with honors). In addition to his interface work, Dr. Prothero has extensive industrial experience as a software engineer. He has consulted on technology issues for both the private sector and the U.S. Government, including projects funded by the EPA; Air Force; Navy and Army.
