Current Research and Areas of Expertise

Trish Cornez has recently written a textbook, co-authored with Rick Cornez, on programming using ActionScript 3.0, the underlying language of Flash.  The publisher is Jones and Bartlett Learning.  

This book, An Introduction to Programming with ActionScript 3.0,  was conceived with two types of individuals in mind: the programming student and multimedia developers.   By using the Flash environment, this book integrates key OOP concepts that are related to the world of programming seen daily in an easy to understand and straight-forward approach such as the development of games and web applications utilizing graphics, animation, and sound.

Specific interests are:

  1. Animation and algorithmic art
  2. Low-Polygon modeling
  3. Multimedia Game Programming
  4. Immersive Responsive Systems
