Welcome to Dr. Nicola Marae Allain’s faculty website.
Here you’ll find information about some of the courses and studies I teach at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. I also offer totally independent studies customized to student interests. Take a look at the “About” page to learn more about my academic background and the types of topics I cover. Reading the course descriptions provided on this site should also give you an idea about options. In addition to “traditional” performing arts, media and philosophy training, I have extensive expertise in digital media and technology, having developed a wide range of systems, environments and artifacts. For example, the avatars in the header above are a sampling of the 100 or so 3D characters I created for the virtual world Second Life, using Adobe Photoshop and a number of 3D software applications.
