Recent Activities

============================================

Check out and contribute to our upcoming workshop on the future of visualization at IEEEVIS in Paris.

============================================

I'm now a postdoc at the University of Copenhagen.

============================================

I defended my thesis entitled "Physical and Tangible Information Visualization" (see below for details).

============================================

Research Interests

My research is guided by my interest in the intersection where computers meet the physical world. Ever since computers became wide-spread tools, there have been efforts to have interaction take place in the physical world instead of through versatile but indirect input devices. I am interested in exploring the wide space of beyond-desktop interfaces and specifically their application for information visualization.
