I am interested in broad area of Human-Computer Interaction, but have been especially focused on interactions between human and the real world through computers, their input modalities, and their development methods. My current focus is on designing tools for programming interactive media content.

In my future vision, everyone can be a weekend carpenter who makes his/her everyday life easy and comfortable with help of information technology, i.e., end-user programming { of | in } the real world.
