I aim to improve human–computer interaction by developing principles to design and methods to evaluate user interfaces. I am interested in interaction at the basic level of human perception and movement. I combine empirical methods and statistical modeling to describe and predict user performance, experience, and behavior in interaction. The user interface types I have focused on span from mobile UIs in my doctoral studies and body-based UIs in my postdoc research to my most recent focuses on virtual and augmented reality interfaces.
I am an HCI researcher, currently holding an assistant professor position at the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. I was previously a postdoc researcher here, and prior to that at Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT. I received my doctorate in Information and Computer Science from Aalto University, Finland, in 2014. I was also a visiting researcher at Glasgow University, UK, in 2010. I publish mostly at CHI, and I am actively serving in both CHI and MobileHCI committees.
