Research Interests

My research focuses on multimodal human-computer interaction in the operating room. I'm working on methods which allow physicans to interact with software while keeping their hands free for surgical tasks. Therefore, I utilize hand gestures, gaze and the feet as input channels and investigate combinations for touchless hands-free interaction methods.
