ResearchEmerging interaction styles such as tangible computing, gesture-based interfaces and virtual reality, extend beyond the desktop paradigm and offer a more natural, intuitive and accessible form of interaction. With a broad range of application-domains, including scientific visualization, energy management and education, these interfaces show a potential to significantly enhance the way people interact and leverage digital information.
Through my research I seek to contribute to next generation human-computer interaction by developing frameworks, software tools and specification techniques that aid their design, implementation and evaluation. In addition I am investigating the strengths and limitations of next generation interfaces by building interactive systems that leverage users' spatial, social, and kinesthetic skills.
