Researcher in human-computer interaction
I work in the field of human-computer interaction. I currently work at the University of Copenhagen as a postdoc, working with Kasper Hornbæk on the BODY-UI project. My research interests include the use of novel technology for device input and output. During my PhD, I researched methods that can integrate with wearable devices, to enable mid-air interaction and hand gestures. More recently, I have focused on feedback methods for wearables and on-body interaction. My work tends to involve sensors and actuators of all kinds, with a strong emphasis on EMG, ultrasonics, infrared and magnetics.
