Brett Oppegaard, PhD, an assistant professor at University of Hawaii, studies ubiquitous computing and mobile media. He was the individual recipient of the regional and national 2012 George and Helen Hartzog Award for his research into mobile app development and media delivery systems within the National Park Service as well as the national 2013 John Wesley Powell Prize winner for outstanding achievement in the field of historical displays. He also teaches communication and digital media classes stemming from his many years of experience working for daily newspapers, during which he earned several national, regional and state awards. He was chosen for a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship as a journalist and also has earned National Endowment for the Humanities’ grants as a scholar for his innovative mobile media research projects. Those projects include collaborations with America’s first national park, Yellowstone, and the National Park Service’s Harpers Ferry Center, the Interpretive Design Center of the federal agency. He now works in the School of Communications, within the College of Social Sciences at University of Hawaii’s flagship Manoa campus. His interdisciplinary research agenda, focused primarily upon medium studies, accessibility issues, and usability studies, has led him to explore ways in which mediated interpretation can evolve into interactive and digital place-based forms – through locative media, augmented reality, and mixed reality – particularly at heritage sites and national parks, or in embedded journalistic media objects.
