About me

I am a researcher in Natural Interaction Research group at Microsoft Research. My research interests include augmented reality, computational illumination, surface computing, new input form factors and devices, as well as touch and freehand gestural input. I am fascinated by the intersection point where the digital technology world meets the curved, physical, 3D space we live in.

I have been active in the Human-Computer Interaction research community and I have had the pleasure of serving on various program committees (CHI, UIST, ISMAR, ITS). I was the program co-chair for ACM UIST 2012 and the general chair for ACM UIST 2014.

In 2010, I worked with Microsoft Hardware to turn one of my research projects into a product. We created Microsoft Touch Mouse which enables the user to use touch gestures on top of the mouse to control their Windows experience.

Prior to working at Microsoft, I received my PhD at Columbia University, working on augmented reality projects that combine immersive experiences with interactive tabletops.


Research Highlights
 
Computational Illumination and Augmented Reality
I am fascinated with the possibility of using cameras and projectors to embue the space with interactivity. Such projector+camera combinations can enable both data visualization and interactivity without requiring the user to wear any additional gear. Most of these projects have been done together with my collaborator Andy Wilson.

Multitouch Input Devices
Current computer input devices are well optimized input solutions, but they often offer very limited bandwith for interacting with computers. For example, very few devices really take advantage of the full dexterity of the user's hands. My projects have investigated extending the interaction vocabulary of several standard input devices (e.g., mice, pens, and spartphone touchscreens) through multi-touch sensing embedded on the surface of the device. Not only are such multi-touch devices capable of both standard operation and multi-touch gestures, but they can also implicitly sense a lot of contextual information about their use (e.g., whether the user is right or left handed). My collaborators and I, took the idea of a multitouch mouse from a research concept and made it into a product (Microsoft Touch Mouse).

Touch and Gestures on New Form Factors
Most of our computing devices in use today are flat and rectangular and the data we present on them seems to follow a similar trend. However, the world we live in is full of objects which have non-flat shape. I have been designing multitouch interactive devices with high curvature (e.g., spheres, cylinders, and domes) and exploring interaction capabilities of such non-flat, curved and potentially deformable and bendable displays. There are many inherent obstacles in enabling both display and sensing capabilities on highly curved displays, but such devices often offer many unique valuable opportunities.
