ChronoPoints | Team
ChronoPoints is an initiative at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training dedicated to digitally documenting historically significant mid-century structures and artifacts. Our mission is to record a “life history” through the capture of digital data and by contextualizing it through contemporaneous photographs, documents, and oral histories of individuals associated with the artifact or building.

Dr. Lori C. Walters

Research Associate Professor


Lori is the director of the ChronoPoints laser scanning initiative at the Institute for Simulation and Training (IST) here at the University of Central Florida. Her research interests include the application of laser scanning, virtual and augmented reality to post World War historical topics. She is the recipient of support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, National Science Foundation, Army Research Lab, Microsoft, and State of Florida Bureau of Historic Preservation. Lori can never resist working on any project that addresses an aspect of Mid-Century architecture and design and is known to obsess about one amazing Mid-Century building, the Cocoa Beach Glass Bank.

Michelle Adams

Michelle J. Adams

Associate Instructor


Michelle is a member of the Department of History and associate director of ChronoPoints.  She travels to all locations to conduct laser scans, digitizes historical images and transcribes oral history interviews. Michelle has presented on and written about project activities. While she diligently works to preserve the heritage of mid-century structures, her true interests are a bit earlier in the twentieth century.  It is quite possible a few more of those pre-World War II buildings will be added to the ChronoPoints portfolio.

Rob Michlowitz

Robert A. Michlowitz

Modeling & Simulation Doctoral Candidate


Rob is a Doctoral Candidate at School for Modeling, Simulation, and Training and ChronoPoints collaborator at the Institute for Simulation and Training (IST) here at the University of Central Florida. He has a varied background including degrees in Management, Economics, Computer Science and Modeling and Simulation, which fits into the diverse mission of IST and the ChronoPoints research agenda. He has assisted Dr. Walters in the preparation of several National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities and Microsoft grants and competitions. Rob has a diverse love and knowledge of technology, economics and has a good lay knowledge of history. He specializes in putting things together (people, technology, and ideas). Cool fact: Rob is a distant relative of rms (true computer geeks know who that is).
