About Me

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Bath.

My research aims to push the boundaries of how users interact with computer interfaces by methodically researching, developing, and evaluating interactive systems which leverage novel input methods. My research includes novel interaction techniques, computer vision-based gestural interaction, eye tracking interaction, wearable technologies, and interaction in extended reality (AR/VR).

I have a broad publication record in premiere international conferences such as CHI, UIST, UbiComp/IMWUT, and TOCHI and my work has been covered by media outlets such as the BBC, New Scientist, Reuters, the Telegraph, and Wired.

Previously, I was an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Researcher in the Interactive Systems group at Lancaster University in Dr. Steven Houben's research group. My PhD investigated motion-coupling techniques using computer vision to enable interaction with any body part or object under the supervision of Prof. Hans Gellersen. During my PhD I undertook an internship at FXPAL in Palo Alto, California with Don Kimber and Patrick Chiu.
