ps: I finished writing up my Ph.D. dissertation and expecting to have my defense soon. I’m seeking a full time research scientist position. Please contact me for my application materials.
I am researching at the crossroads of ubiquitous computing (Ubicomp) and human-computer interaction (HCI). I am, in particular, interested on mobile devices and how they are used in the daily life. Due to the use of mobile devices in various contexts, determining and utilizing the context for providing context-based services is essential and, indeed, beneficial. Development a prototype, design and conduct of an experiment, and analysis of data is the sequence I have followed to answer a question or assess an idea. With the emergence of app stores, I have explored conducting user studies in the wild. Having couple of thousands users downloading and using prototypes provides this opportunity to collect users in more real context of use.
