I'm an Associate Professor of Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, directing the Future Interfaces Group. My lab creates novel sensing and interface technologies that foster powerful and delightful interactions between humans and computers. This research often lies in emerging use modalities, such as smart environments, wearable computing, touch interfaces and gestural interaction. Please see my research page for more details.

My idea of the good life is one of education, adventure and creativity.
