Biographical Sketch

I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at San Francisco State University, and a Research Assistant Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. I will be joining the faculty at Waterloo full-time in Summer, 2006. Link to my Waterloo webpage here.

Research Interests

My primary research interests are currently focused on PUIs, Perceptive User Interfaces, in pen computing with particular emphasis on sketch recognition and the application of pattern recognition to user's actions.

I also work with Microsoft's Bay Area Research Center on small components of the MyLifeBits project. My specific project in this area involves browsing in large, time-varying data sets.

Finally, I do some work in Bioinformatics, specifically on the design and implementation of a community-based repository for biological multimedia information with applications to research and to teaching, and the design of software tools to aid field biologists in data collection.
