Research Interests

How personal experience is affected by our changing relationship with interactive and reactive technologies. Examples of things we have experimented with include altered real-time sensory experiences of the real world, various reactive virtual and mixed reality environments, dextrous interaction environments and embodied interactive devices. My research group looks at how information technology can enhance quality of life. One current application focus is tangible interaction tools and cognitive supports for elderly people and other groups with special needs.
