I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Central Florida. My interests include pen-based computing, 3D user interfaces for games, human motion estimation, virtual reality, human-robot interaction and interactive computer graphics. I am also an adjunct associate professor (Research) in the Brown University Computer Science Department.

I am the director of the Interactive Systems & User Experience Research Cluster of Excellence.

3D User Interfaces: Theory and Practice has been translated into Japanese and Chinese. Written with my colleagues Doug Bowman (Virginia Tech), Ernst Kruijff (Graz University of Technology), and Ivan Poupyrev (Disney Research), it is the first comprehensive text/reference book on 3D user interfaces.
