ABOUT ME

head2
I’m a computer science PhD candidate supervised by Daniel Wigdor at the University of Toronto. I’m part of the Dynamic Graphics Project (DGP).

My area of research is Human Computer Interaction (HCI). Specifically, I’m interested in exploring and facilitating cross-device experiences. As the number and variety of “smart” interconnected devices continues to increase, so do the potential benefits of applications that extend beyond a single device. Examples of this already exist in the wild (using your phone as a remote control or editing a document stored on the cloud using multiple devices) and many more will emerge as the Internet of Things vision is realized. These cross-device prospects are exciting, but it’s easy to forget the steps involved in forming the connections between devices. My research focuses on crafting interactions that allow users to easily establish and break these webs of device relationships as they move through a world permeated with connected technology.
