Her research interests include multimodal user interfaces, multimodal analysis (including physiological data, gaze, speech, gestures), affective computing & social signal processing, social robotics & embodied conversational agents, technology-enhanced learning, tangible and perceptive user interfaces.
Sharon Oviatt is a professor of HCI and Creative Technologies at Monash University. She is the Director of Human-Computer Interaction and Human-Centred A.I group, and currently serves as the President and Chair of the Board of Directors of Incaa Designs, a non-profit with the aim of researching and designing new educational interfaces. Her main areas of research are human-centered, multimodal, mobile and educational interfaces.
Aaron Quigley is a full Professor of Human Computer Interaction and head of school in Computer Science and Engineering in the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. His research interests include discreet computing, global HCI, pervasive and ubiquitous computing and information visualisation. He has previously organised workshops at CHI and AVI on multi-device interaction.
Nicolai Marquardt is an associate professor in Physical Computing at the University College London. At the UCL Interaction Centre he works on projects in the research areas of ubiquitous computing, cross-device interaction, interactive surfaces, sensor-based systems, prototyping toolkits and physical user interfaces. He is co-author of the Sketching User Experiences Workbook (Morgan Kaufmann 2011) and Proxemic Interactions textbook (Morgan & Claypool 2015).
Ilhan Aslan is a research scientist of the European Research Center at Huawei Device, Co., Ltd. He has a background in computer science and artificial intelligence. His postdoctoral research focus is broadly on embodied interaction and enabling human-artifact symbiosis. He turns inspirations from embodied and situated theories of cognition and related frameworks (including Somaesthetics) into the design of multi-modal interfaces.
Ran JU is a research scientist of the Software Technology Planning \& Pre-Research department at Huawei Device, Co., Ltd. He holds a PhD in computer science and his doctoral research is mainly on multimedia. Currently he is focusing on the research of interactive multimedia, e.g. AI based UX design and cross-device visual content (including GUI, image and video) adaptation.
