Research interests

  • Augmented Reality (input device, interaction techniques)
  • Human Computer Interaction
  • Natural User Interfaces
  • Wearable Computing (wearable computer, head mounted display)


I am currently interested in Social and Natural User Interfaces used in educational settings, including traditional classroom, and expanding to embodied forms of knowledge, such as the teaching of dance, martial arts, yoga, and circus. My research background is in augmented reality, wearable computing, and human computer interaction.
