Personal profile

Research interests

My primary research area is Human-Computer Interaction, with a particular interest in developing novel interactive systems to bridge the physical-digital divide. My recent work focuses on the design, engineering, and evaluation of shape-changing interfaces—surfaces that can dynamically change their geometry based on digital content or user input. I've then used these interfaces as Data Physicalizations, converting virtual data into physical form. My other work has investigated novel interaction techniques, haptic feedback, and gestural interaction. You can find more information about my work on my website: www.jasonalexander.kiwi

Willing to supervise doctoral students

Students in my lab work on projects that involve physicality in Human-Computer Interaction. I'm currently looking for excellent students who wish to work on:

  • Novel display surfaces: the design, implementation, and evaluation of novel shape-changing or haptic displays that go beyond a visual surface.
  • Data Physicalization: the physical equivalent of Data Visualization. In particular data encoding for physicalizations and how novel display technology, such as Augmented Reality, can be used in conjunction with Physicalizations.

Interested students should get in touch with me to discuss their skills and interests in these areas.
