About me


I am a senior postdoctoral research assistant at Hasselt University and a member of the Human-Computer Interaction lab of the Expertise Centre for Digital Media, a research institute of Hasselt University. I received a master's degree in computer science and knowledge engineering in 2004, and a PhD in computer science in 2012, both from the transnational University Limburg (an international cooperation between Hasselt University, Belgium and Maastricht University, the Netherlands). In general, my research revolves around new methods and notations for engineering interactive computing systems, and prototyping and evaluating new interaction techniques and visualizations. I have a specific interest in intelligibility of gestural and multimodal user interfaces, and co-located collaborative interaction.
