Research and teach HCI issues with societal impacts. Promote emergent literacy for blind children using 3D printing. Study Android apps using Big Data. Automate GUIs using computer vision.

Android Design Analysis

What can we learn from hundreds of thousands of Android apps?

Tactile Children's Books

How can we 3D model and print tactile story books for blind children?

Crowdsourcing Design

How can we engage and empower a crowd (parents, teachers, volunteers) to design 3D tactile story books for blind children?

Movable Pictures

How can we 3D model and print tactile pictures that move as a child pull, flip, and spin?

Sikuli Slides

Can GUI automation programming be as easy as making PowerPoint slides?
