I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Synaesthetic Media Lab, Ryerson University, Toronto. My current research interests include developing toolkits for cross-device interactions and designing spatial and embodied interactions for novel technologies. I received my PhD in Computing from Queen's University and my Masters in Human-Computer Interaction from Georgia Institute of Technology.
As a part of my doctoral research, I designed and developed Paper Computer prototypes including a flexible tablet pc (PaperTab, 2013), a flexible stackable mobile device (DisplayStacks, 2012) and a wearable computer (Snaplet, 2011). I presented a talk at TEDxQueensu 2014 based on this work.
On the whims of my left brain, I’ve turned into a fledgling poet with many of my poems published under the Creative Commons License. I also enjoy overloading my brain with philosophical discourses extending from Calvin and Hobbes all the way to Krishnamurti.
My right brain drives me to actively explore technology trivia and the history of technology. My interest has led me to participate and organize various trivia events with such themes. Feel free to get in touch with me and I’ll be happy to tell you a strange trivia or two.
