I'm an Assistant Professor of Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, directing the Future Interfaces Group. My group creates novel sensing and interface technologies that foster powerful and natural interactions between humans and computers. This research often lies in emerging use modalities, such as wearable computing, touch interfaces and gestural interaction. Please see my research page for more details on my personal research. I am also a cofounder of Qeexo, a startup developing "rich-touch" interactive technologies.

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