Opacity

In Summer 2018, he received an NSERC grant to research user privacy when combining services. He was trying to identify whether two services that individually keep a user’s data private still maintain privacy when they are combined. Using modal transition systems as the underlying model, he developed a theoretical method for combining services. He also explored the characteristics of opacity (privacy) with respect to modal transition systems.

Virtual Keyboard

In Spring 2018, Graeme developed a 3D graphics application that allows a user to walk on a massive virtual piano. Developed using C++ and modern OpenGL, he manually wrote shaders in GLSL for the graphics processing unit in order to achieve the desired lighting effects in the 3D world.
