Research

My academic and research vocation is to explore and demonstrate how HCI as a field of applied enquiry can contribute to building a more inclusive society. Currently, I pursue this objective by designing and researching multimodal and crossmodal interactive systems – systems that exploit a wider range of the human senses – to support interaction with and through digital technology.
