  I am interested in computer science.

Current special interests and projects include the effect of technology on group awareness and social identity, application of software engineering practices into business models and processes, ubiquitious computing and ambient information concepts, theortical foundations of interaction and natural interactivity, elastic constraints and preference, visualization techniques for capturing the 'feel' of time based recordings, media and influence, and using machine learning in human-computer interfaces.
