I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath.
My research focuses on enabling interaction with computers in challenging situations. Specifically, while users’ hands are encumbered holding everyday objects. This always-available input has a wide range of applications, from controlling mobile devices when on the move to controlling systems in healthcare contexts. To build an entire stack of such novel input experiences, my work employs:
interaction design by understanding user preferences,
creation and empirical analysis of large-scale datasets,
machine learning models for real-time recognition.
I recently received my Ph.D. from the Human-Computer Interaction group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and Saarland University, advised by Prof. Jürgen Steimle. I completed my masters at the Media Interaction Lab, advised by Prof. Michael Haller.
I have also worked at Meta Reality Labs with Stephanie Santosa and Prof. Tovi Grossman. Previously, I worked with Prof. Daniel Ashbrook at the University of Copenhagen and with Prof. Ellen Yi-Luen Do at the National University of Singapore. I have also been fortunate to work with the Parkinson’s Research Group at the UBC Hospital in Vancouver, and contributed to Open-source communities (Mozilla and Python).
