I am an Associate Professor and currently serve as the Associate Head (Communications and Outreach) for the Department of Computer Science at the University of Calgary. I direct the RICELab (Rethinking Interaction, Collaboration and Engagement) research group.
My current research explores the design, implementation and evaluation of novel systems for:
- mixed reality interfaces for collaboration
- electronic fashion as a means of expression
- remote immersion.
Broadly, I am interested in Human-Computer Interaction, and the sub-disciplines of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), and Ubiquitous Computing.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, watching cooking videos on YouTube, watching movies, and running after my kid.
In my previous life (i.e. before kiddo), I was an avid video game player, volleyball player (in real life), and aspired to be an awesome programmer.
