Scott's Short Bio

I am a Researcher in the Computational User Experiences (CUE) group within the VIBE area at Microsoft Research. I recently completed my PhD in the Computer Science & Engineering department at the University of Washington where I was advised by Professor James Landay and Dr. Desney Tan. My general research interests are Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp). More specifically, I tend to spend most of my time exploring off-desktop interfaces including Physiological Computing and "Natural User Interfaces." In my dissertation work, I created new human-computer interfaces by exploring techniques to harness the untapped bandwidth of the human body for physiological interfaces to computing. The focus of my work in this area has been muscle-computer interfaces.
