Research

My research area in general is HCI. Some things I’ve touched are: touchless mid-air hand gestures, Fitts’ law, recommender systems. Collaborators welcome, especially if you want to do something related to Fitts Law. I’m trying to convince more people to contribute their datasets. If you have some, I want them.

Source Codes

Source code for gestures available on github. Built and tested on Windows 7. I believe it will work with Mac OSX, but never tried it.

Source codes for Fitts related research, including tools for processing and visualising Fitts regressions can be found at FittsLaw.org
