The basic thrust of my research is to enhance the input vocabulary that one
can express using common computational devices and user interfaces. For
example, my current projects include:
Input devices & interaction
techniques: touch-sensing input devices, two-handed input, pen and
gesture input, tactile I/O, sensing technologies, ...
Mobile devices & interaction
Formal experimental studies of input techniques
and human abilities
All other topics relevant to human-computer
My PhD Work: "The
Doll's Head" -- The Props-based Interface for Neurosurgical Visualization.
