Two Paragraphs About Me
I am a Principal Researcher at Nokia. I spend most of my time looking at people's interactions with an ecology of novel mobile and wearable technologies. In general, my research interests are in Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I enjoy building new applications and systems; my curiosity also drives me to study how people interact and use these and other technical systems.
I have a PhD in Information and Computer Science from UC Irvine, a Master's in Computer Science from the University of Michigan, and Bachelor's degrees in Cogntive Science and in Computer Science from UC San Diego. Other notable pieces of paper include a class one paragliding license, a certification for open water diving, and a certificate of completion of "Sailing: For the Fun of It."
