I supervise students on BSc, MSc and PhD level. If you are a student at Lancaster University looking for a master/bachelor theses or project, please have a look at my project proposals. There are also options for (erasmus) internships and I am looking for PhD students.

PhD Students

Chi-Jui Wu, PhD in Computer Science (starting 2018)
Towards Recombinable and Reconfigurable Interactive Spaces.

We have open PhD positions in our Interactive Systems group at Lancaster University. If you are interested in doing doctoral research in the area of human-computer interaction and physical computing, feel free to contact me to discuss research opportunities. You can find more information on open or funded PhD studentships at our departmental website. In particular I am interested in supervising students on:

  • Multi-device or Cross-device interaction techniques, toolkits, systems and applications.
  • Shape-changing displays and interfaces.
  • Interactive spaces and spatial/proxemic interaction techniques, displays and applications.
  • Large interactive surfaces and displays, architecture and interaction.
  • Human-data interaction, physical data visualisations, in-the-wild deployment of physical data installations.
  • Large scale interactive systems, urban internet-of-things, sensor systems and public installation.
  • Interactive Systems in general.
