I am currently interested in different aspects of display technology with specific focus on multi-view, organic and novel display approaches driven from an HCI perspective. My research interest is primarily hardware centric and focuses on prototyping systems within the field of HCI. I am also interested in the use of HCI to improve the use of computers in existing scientific research fields.
TeachingAbe is currently a HCI lecturer at SCC involved with the international teaching partnerships of Lancaster University at LU Ghana, Sunway in Malaysia and GD Goenka in India.

PhD Supervision Interests
I am interested in deformable displays, organic disjointed display elements, tangible interacatibles, novel stereoscopic approaches for single and multiple users. I have a transient interest in Brain computer interfaces too. I am in the process of procuring funding for my ideas at the moment. Feel free to discuss your ideas with me if they align to any of my research interests.
