I am a Research Associate in the Multimodal Interaction Group in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow.

I work on the FET-Open Levitate project. Levitate manipulates audio waveforms to create new user interfaces that users can see, hear and feel in mid-air. I am exploring how ultrasonic manipulation can be used to create a new type of mid-air display, with integrated audio and ultrasound haptic feedback.

I did my PhD at the University of Glasgow, supervised by Stephen Brewster and Vuokko Lantz from Nokia, Finland. My PhD thesis describes interaction techniques for addressing in-air gesture systems. I then worked on the ABBI (Audio Bracelet for Blind Interaction) project, which developed an audio bracelet for the rehabilitation of visually impaired children.

My research interests include multimodal human-computer interaction, novel gesture interfaces, wearable technology and interaction techniques. My PhD research investigated interactions for mid-air gesture interfaces. I am also interested in around-device interaction and gesture interaction with small devices.

In my spare time I like to cycle and drink coffee.
