My research is about creating new interactive experiences that reach out to people. My vision is of digital information embodied by physical objects, materials and sensations, not pixels on a screen. Such user interfaces should allow people to interact with technology using the full extent of their physical capabilities. Towards this vision, my work covers several aspects of mid-air interaction, including novel mid-air displays, ultrasound haptic feedback, and mid-air gesture interaction.
I recently worked on the FET-Open/H2020 Levitate project. Levitate manipulates audio waveforms to create new user interfaces that users can see, hear and feel in mid-air. My work on this project explored how ultrasonic manipulation could be used to create new types of mid-air display, with integrated audio and ultrasound haptic feedback.
In my spare time I like to cycle and drink coffee.
