I design and develop interactions and technologies that embrace digital and physical experiences. I am interested in tools, techniques and devices that enable new interaction concepts for the augmentation and empowerment of human abilities. The research projects are from exciting times and inspiring collaborations at different research labs and institutions, including MIT, Columbia University, University of California, KTH (Royal Institute of Technology), and Microsoft Research.
