The best my hair has ever looked

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Calgary.

My research interests are situated in Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) -- the study of how people work together using technology -- with a twist of Ubiquitous Computing -- technology in everyday scenarios. My current research investigates the integration of mobile devices in large display environments, exploration into personal informatics, and telecommunication technologies for collaborative work.

I am a proud member of the Extremely Tall and Extremely Short HCI Researchers Club. If you haven't met me, I am a very very tall guy. Really.

I am currently recruiting undergrad researchers and MSc candidates. See the Minions page for more information.
