Biography

Before joining UCL, I established the Sussex Computer Human Interaction (SCHI 'sky') Lab at the School of Engineering and Informatics at the University of Sussex. My research is mainly supported by an ERC starting grant. As part of my research, I developed a novel scent-delivery technology that was exhibited at the World Economic Forum (WEF) 2019 and 2020 in Davos. Supported by an ERC proof-of-concept, this technology is now commercialised through OWidgets Ltd, a University start-up I co-founded in 2019. Before joining Sussex, I was a Marie Curie Fellow at Newcastle University. I was selected Young Scientist 2017 and 2018 to attend the WEF in China, and become an inaugural member of the ACM Future of Computing Academy (ACM-FCA) in 2017. More recently, I was appointed as a Visiting Professor at the Burberry Material Futures Research Group at RCA and spent the summer 2019 as a Visiting Professor at the HCI Engineering Group at MIT CSAIL. More details on my research can be found at http://www.multi-sensory.info.

Research Summary

My research ambition to establish touch, taste, and smell as interaction modalities in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), to study and engineer multisensory interfaces and experiences.
