My human-computer interaction research blurs the boundaries of interactive technologies and enables interfaces to seamlessly grow, with the help of users and crowds, to take advantage of devices and use contexts that are poorly supported by current design.
Update I'll be joining the University of Michigan School of Information as an Assistant Professor this fall. If you're interested in working with me at Michigan (undergrad, PhD student, postdoc, intern), send me an email.
I'm currently a Visiting Researcher in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University hosted by Anind Dey. My research stay at CMU is funded by a Swiss NSF Advanced Postdoc.Mobility Fellowship. Before coming to CMU in February 2015, I was a Senior Researcher in the Global Information Systems Group working with Moira Norrie and a Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science at ETH Zurich. I received my PhD on Lightweight Informed Adaptation from ETH Zurich in 2012.
At CMU, I'm currently using my Swiss NSF mobility grant to investigate ways of orchestrating multiple devices and crowds to enable complex information seeking, sensemaking and productivity tasks on small mobile and wearable devices. I'm also contributing to the Google IoT project led by CMU.
We recently presented three papers at ACM CHI 2016 in San Jose:
May Accepted Assistant Professor position at UMSI. Invited talk at Google in Mountain View, CA. Attended CHI'16 in San Jose, CA. Participated in microproductivity and cross-surface workshops. Led Systems@CHI lunch. Chaired end-user programming session. Presented WearWrite and XDBrowser.
April Joined HCOMP'16 PC.
October Joined EICS'16 PC.
July Published WearWrite tech report.
February Started working at CMU HCII.
