Curriculum vitae (CV)[PDF] (Last updated July 16, 2014.)
I am an Assistant Professor in the Information Sciences and Technologies Department of the Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York.
My research is in the area of human-computer interaction, where I concentrate on new interaction techniques, devices, and applications. Historically I have concentrated on wearable and mobile computing, with the goal of allowing people to be less focused on their technology and more engaged with the world, while still reaping the creativity and productivity benefits of their devices. My current research continues this thread while adding a second focus on helping non-experts more easily understand and use personal fabrication technology such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and CNC routers.
I live in Rochester, New York with my wife, Sally and our son, Liam. When I’m not doing awesome research, I like to take photos, play the ukulele, and garden.
I have a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Computer Science, all from the Georgia Institute of Technology. I finished my Ph.D. in 2009, and worked for Nokia for three years and Samsung Research America for two.
During graduate school, I was the Director of Production for Charmed Technology, a wearable computing startup based in California and Georgia.
