About

I work on novel interactive technologies including transparent displays, natural user-interfaces, mobile devices, tabletops and public displays. Taking a human-computer interaction perspective, my work covers the design, implementation and evaluation of high fidelity prototypes with the goal of uncovering their fundamental principles and establishing the best technical approach to their development.
