I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Synaesthetic Media Laboratory (Synlab), led by Dr. Ali Mazalek, in the RTA School of Media at Ryerson University, Canada. My primary research interests are in the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

As a researcher, my goal is to make computer technologies accessible to everyone by developing natural and intuitive input and interaction techniques. A major thread of my work focuses on smarter solutions for text entry, error correction, and editing on various devices. My other interests include mobile interaction, tangible user interfaces, child-computer interaction, usable security, and biological data visualization.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from York University, Canada in 2013, under the supervision of Dr. Wolfgang Stuerzlinger. Then I joined Flowton Technologies as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to lead an NSERC ENGAGE funded project. Upon completion of the project in 2014, I joined Synlab at Ryerson University, Canada. I was also a Research Intern at Microsoft Research, Redmond in 2012, working with Bill Buxton, Dr. Michel Pahud, and Dr. Ken Hinckley. I obtained my M.Sc. in Computer Science from Lakehead University, Canada and B.Sc. in Computer Science from Trent University, Canada.
