PhD Topic - Multimodal Co-located Interaction

My PhD research is focused on supporting people's natural interactions over digital surfaces such as large tables and wall displays.

Application areas include tabletop gaming, military command and control, air traffic control and hospital emergency rooms.

Interaction on a digital table supports face to face collaboration with the added benefits of digital displays (e.g., real time updates, access to the Internet and rich satellite imagery). Core features of my work include rich whole handed bimanual gestures, speech and gesture input, and multi user interaction.
