Dr. Audrey Girouard's main research focuses on next-generation interfaces that fit in the organic user interfaces and reality based interactions framework. She obtained her PhD from Tufts University in 2010 working with Robert Jacob, focusing on adaptive passive brain-computer interfaces for healthy users using non-invasive technology. Audrey was a visiting researcher in the InSitu group at INRIA/Universite de Paris-Sud in 2008. She received her undergraduate degree in software engineering from École Polytechnique de Montréal, Canada. Audrey co-organized workshops at CHI’2006 and CHI’2010, on reality based interactions as well as brain and physiological computing. She reviews for conferences and journals such as ACM CHI, UIST, TEI, Interact, and TOCHI. She is a Junior Engineer with the Order of Professional Engineers of Quebec (OIQ). See her website at:
Kibum Kim was a senior software engineer/human interaction researcher in the Applied Research Center at Motorola before joining the HML at Queen’s University in June 2010. He received his Ph.D. from the Center for Human Computer Interaction at Virginia Tech, where he worked with Prof. Tatar and Prof. Harrison in the Pragmatics of Education/Emotional Computing (POET) Research Lab. For his dissertation, he has conducted research in the areas of human-computer interaction (HCI) and computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) as well as computer supported cooperative work (CSCW), which investigates computer-mediated communications (as with Handheld computers and Tablet PCs). At Motorola, he used Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques for the Topic Detection project. Currently, he is working for the e-textile display and spherical and cylinder display projects at HML.
john is a masters student at the hml. he is currently investigating how multi-touch devices of different shapes and sizes can provide interesting and unique interaction possibilities.
Chris is a masters student in the Human Media Lab. He completed his undergrad at Queen's University in Computing. He is currently working on the design and implementation of an interactive table for the Human Media Lab's new space that maintains both private and public workareas for use in conference rooms.
amartya is a masters student at the hml. he is working on remote interaction technologies that are user-friendly and closely resemble the way human beings interact with the physical world.
Tré is our regular hardware geek. When not busy hacking iPhone protectors into semi-useful input devices, he's trying to trick Philips Lumalive e-textiles into behaving.
