Research Interests

I am interested in developing novel ways of Human-Computer Interaction, while keeping the user with his abilities, knowledge, goals, and usage context in mind. Designing for User Experience not only through an appealing interface but also by the underlying information architecture; starting with current research findings in cognitive psychology and neuroscience is my research objective.
