Personal profile

Research interests

The main focus of my research is on finding novel methods and creating advanced tools to aid research strategy, collaboration and innovation. It involves a mixture of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) and Data Science. Lately my work has been published at various international conferences including ACM CHI, BCS HCI and ACM CSCW.

My research currently impacts the areas of human-computer interaction, collaboration, perception, appearance, machine vision, fashion, art and retail. Finally, throughout the years my research have enabled me to develop various interactive tools that are currently being used at various multi-national companies, small and medium size enterprises, research councils, and independent retailers.
