I am working as a Systems Scientist at CMU HCI Institute. My research interest lies in situational control of end-user’s cognitive load (and management of attention demands) based on sensor-based assessment for supporting seamless interaction between humans and computers. I extend my research focus from human-centered problems dealing with cognitive or perceptual issues in Human-Computer Interaction and the quality of life of people who want to overcome a difficulty in interacting with virtual information spaces (e.g., elder people or cognitively-disabled people). My studies will include an interdisciplinary journey to cognitive sciences, psychology, humanities or human factors, as well as test-bed prototyping, design of interactive tasks, multi-modality, usability analysis and hybrid assessment of end-users’ cognitive load states (e.g., task performance, subjective ratings, eye-tracking, and psycho-physiological measurement).
