I am interested in supervising PhD students and PostDoc researchers in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction including Interaction Design, Industrial Design and Information Retrieval and Seeking Studies and the intersection of these two areas.

If you are interested in pursuing a PhD project, please contact me at: Please send me an outline of your research interest and research project. If you have a funded PhD project, that would be even more positive.
