I'm an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan School of Information, where I lead the Information Interaction Lab. We study the next generation of user interfaces, as well as the methods and tools to create them. With the goal of making interfaces easier to use and to create, our research benefits both users and designers, and allows more users to be designers.
Previously, I was a Visiting Researcher in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, and a Senior Researcher and Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science at ETH Zurich.
I'm setting up a new human-computer interaction lab in the areas of interface engineering, ubiquitous computing, and crowdsourcing. I'm looking for people who share my vision and interests in designing, building, and studying novel user interfaces, powered not only by technology, but also by humans. If you are interested in working with me, send me an email (undergrads, PhD students, postdocs, interns).
Please find out more on the Information Interaction Lab web site.
Using my Swiss NSF mobility grant at CMU, I investigated ways of orchestrating multiple devices and crowds to enable complex information seeking, sensemaking and productivity tasks on small mobile and wearable devices. I also contributed to the Google IoT project led by CMU. This work led to three papers at ACM CHI 2016:
March Max Speicher joining my lab as a postdoc. Exciting!
February Invited to the HCI.Tools workshop at CHI for my position paper Playing the Tricky Game of Toolkits Research.
January Teaching Intro to Interaction Design this spring.
December XDBrowser 2.0 accepted to CHI'17.
August Wrapping up my Swiss NSF Advanced.Postdoc Mobility fellowship at CMU. Thanks for the support!
