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.

Lately I've been exploring different ways to use the VelociTap decoder.
At the upcoming CHI text entry workshop, I'll describe recent work to decode physical keyboard typing and to decode multitouch taps based only on the number of fingers.
Email me if you'd like to join us at the workshop on May 8th in San Jose!
