I'm heading the Human-Technology Interaction (HTI) M.Sc. programme and the Pervasive Interaction (SPI) research group at UTA. My research and teaching interests include many aspects of multimodal interfaces, including multimodal and spoken dialogue systems, novel user interfaces for mobile and pervasive computing applications, embodied and spatial interaction (e.g., gestures), user experience evaluation, interactive lighting, ICT4D, and virtual reality.
