His research interests include many aspects of multimodal and spoken user interfaces, including multimodal and spoken dialogue systems, and novel user interfaces for mobile and pervasive computing applications. One practical result of this work is the Jaspis architecture.Currently, his main interests include embodied and spatial interaction (e.g., gestures), user experience evaluation, and interactive lighting, for example. To the date, he has participated in more than 50 externally funded research projects.
