Research Themes

As art influences science and technology, science and technology can in turn inspire art:
recognizing this mutually beneficial relationship, his research interests combine scientific
research in human-computer interaction with artistic and humanistic research, and includes
non-verbal multimodal interactive systems; computational models of non-verbal full-body
expressive gesture, emotion, and social signals; interactive multimodal systems for
performing arts, for active experience of cultural content, for health, therapy and
rehabilitation.
