My research interests lie within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction: Natural Interface Design, User Experience and Urban Environments. I am interested in studying how people use interfaces in urban spaces and how technology influences behavior. The problems I address become increasingly significant as technology, specifically interactive artifacts, start to leave rooms and invade cities with little thought on how they should be integrated and how people behave in their presence. My research aims for the standardization of interactions between devices, seamless integration in the urban fabric and into people’s daily lives.
