Ahmed Sabbir Arif

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Synaesthetic Media Laboratory (Synlab), Ryerson University. 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 PhD in Computer Science from York University in 2013, under the supervision of Wolfgang Stuerzlinger. Then I joined Flowton Technologies as a Postdoctoral Fellow to lead an NSERC ENGAGE funded project. Upon completion of the project in 2014, I joined Synlab at Ryerson University, led by Ali Mazalek, as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. I was also a Research Intern at Microsoft Research, Redmond in 2012, working with Bill Buxton, Michel Pahud, and Ken Hinckley. I obtained my MSc in Computer Science from Lakehead University and BSc in Computer Science from Trent University.
