Hello and welcome! I'm an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at Michigan Tech.
I specialize in designing intelligent interactive systems that leverage uncertain input technologies. A particular focus of my research is on systems that enhance the capabilities of users with permanent or situationally-induced disabilities. My broader interests include human-computer interaction (HCI), speech and language processing, mobile interfaces, and crowdsourcing.
Jan 2017 – Our CHI 2017 paper on physical keyboard input in virtual reality was accepted. Congrats to lead author PhD student James Walker!
Nov 2016 – I'm co-organizing the CHI 2017 workshop: Ubiquitous Text Interaction. This workshop will explore the problems and opportunities of text interactions that are embedded in our environments, available all the time, and used by people who may be constrained by device, situation, or disability. If that sounds interesting, please consider attending!
Oct 2016 –
I'm currently looking for highly motivated students to join my research group. Contact me if you are interested.
