I am Aditya Shekhar Nittala, a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Calgary. I am a member of the Interactions Lab (https://ilab.ucalgary.ca/).
My research vision is to enable the seamless integration of interactive computing devices into our daily environment. My first exploration in this area is to bring computing and interactivity closer to the user’s body. Specifically, I have built “Epidermal Devices”, i.e. interactive devices that reside on the human epidermis. These wearable devices are ultra-slim, adapt themselves to the complex geometries of the body, and enable a wide range of expressive interactions. I also create computational design tools to aid the fabrication of these devices. My research is interdisciplinary and I blend diverse disciplines (e.g. Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, Digital Fabrication, Printed Electronics, and Human-Computer Interaction) for solving fundamental research problems.
