The goal of our research program is to transform apparel design, product development, manufacturing, and retail by using digital technologies to create an environmentally sustainable apparel industry. Our research philosophy is to conduct methodologically rigorous, multi-disciplinary, and ethical research incorporating quantitative and/or qualitative methods. It is essential that our research has practical implications for academia, industry, and society. We address questions related to:

  • Developing technologies for apparel technical design teams, and training future workforce

  • Designing tools and methods for virtual fit analysis

  • Artificial intelligence for garment fit

  • Virtual try-on and AR technologies for consumer use

  • Improving mass-produced clothing fit (including protective apparel) by using anthropometric databases 

  • Mass-customization of clothing, and consumer interest in mass-customization
