I conduct my research at the Interactive Systems group at Lancaster University in UK advised by Prof. Hans Gellersen — interested in exploring, understanding and improving user interfaces of modern computing devices — and love to design, prototype, and play with radically new, creative, and forward-looking ways of interaction, in the spaces of:

  • Multi-touch and 3D gesture based UIs
  • Eye-tracking and gaze based interaction techniques
  • Mobile tablet and smartphone user interfaces
  • Virtual & Augmented reality, 3D UI
