PhD supervision

If you are interested in doing doctoral research in the area of human-computer interaction and physical computing, feel free to contact me to discuss research opportunities. I am interested in supervising students on: (i) Multi-device or Cross-device interaction techniques, toolkits, systems and applications, (ii) Interactive spaces and spatial/proxemic interaction techniques, displays and applications, (iii) Large interactive surfaces and displays, architecture and interaction, (iv) Human-data interaction, physical data visualisations, in-the-wild deployment of physical data installations, (v) Large scale interactive systems, urban internet-of-things, (vi) sensor systems and public installation, and (vii) Interactive Systems in general.

Research Interests

My research and teaching are directed at human-computer interaction, user experience, ubiquitous multi-device systems, physical and tangible computing, and sensor-based systems. My research goals are to research, design, build and evaluate Interactive Systems and Physical Computing devices for human-data interaction and information handling. I am also one of the main organizers of the Cross-Surface workshop series collocated with ITS and CHI aimed at establishing a new research agenda for opportunities and challenges in cross-device interactions.

Current Teaching

For the 2017/2018 academic year, I am teaching:

SCC402: Advanced Human-Computer Interaction:

Advanced module covering advanced topics in experimental Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), with a particular focus on exploring design spaces, prototyping and developing interaction techniques.

SCC140: Creative Technologies: 

Introductory module covering general methods and concepts for user experience design and physical computing prototyping.
