I am Professor of Computer Science at UCL where I currently hold a Royal Academy of Engineering chair in Emerging Technologies. My primary research interest is in the area of human-computer interaction. I am particularly interested in creating novel user-interfaces through the computational manipulation of acoustic wavefronts.

I am always looking for excellent students and research fellows to join my team. Please take a look at Openings.

Professor of Computer Scienc & Head of Department

I started as a Professor in the Department of Informatics and briefly took over as the head of department beforfocusing on research through my Chair in Emerging technololgies role funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering

August 2015 - June 2020

Universty of Bristol, UK

Lecturer to Professor

I was a founding member of the Bristol Interaction and Graphics group . My team started exlploring human-computer interfaces that combine novel display concepts with haptics and shape-changing devices. We participted in several industry and govenrment funded projects that led to multiple patents, publications and a spin-out.
