The core focus of my research is on visuo-spatial cognition and computation at the interface of artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, and cognitive science. We develop cognitive assistive technologies, cognitive interaction systems, and multimodal interaction methods aimed at applications in fields such as: Visuo-Auditory Digital Media Design, (building) Architecture Design, Cognitive Robotics, Geospatial Information Systems. Presently ongoing activities that shape this agenda are:

/ CoDesign EU /

/ DesignSpace /
  • DesignSpace, a research and consultation group focussing on the development of cognitive technologies and educational discourse for people-centred spatial thinking and architecture design. / www.design-space.org/

/ EASE /



previously:
Member of the Cognitive Systems group, first as a DAAD Scholar, and subsequently during 2008-2010 as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow. During 2011-2014, I have also been an elected member and principal investigator in the Spatial Cognition Center (Transregio SFB/TR 8), which ran as a joint initiative between the Universities of Bremen and Freiburg during 2003 - 2014.

previous to previously: From 2002 - 2007, based at the Department of Computer Science at La Trobe University (Melbourne, Australia) where I completed a Masters in Information Technology (2004), and a PhD in Computer Science (2008). Till 2011, underwent basic schooling completing a Bachelor of Economics at the Narsee Monjee College of Economics (Mumbai, India).
