The User Interface Research Group is focused on advancing the field of human-computer interaction research both at the hardware and software levels. We are constantly exploring new ways to make the software which we work with easier to learn, friendlier to use, and more efficient. Our interests lie in both seeking novel yet immediately applicable solutions to the user interface challenges existing in today's software applications, and also rethinking the underlying concepts for which today's user interfaces are designed, by exploring new paradigms which could shape the future generation of application user interfaces.
Our work spans multiple areas within the human-computer interaction research field, including interaction design, computer supported collaborative work, information visualization, and 3D user interfaces. We actively maintain and pursue relationships within the academic community, branching out to the broader disciplines of computer science, in pursuit of forward-thinking interdisciplinary approaches.
