RESEARCH AREAS

 

I mainly pursue a research career in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. I am specially interested in the evaluation of multimodal systems and their quality factors. My thesis topic deals with design and usability evaluation of multimodal interfaces and embodied conversational agents.
