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.
