Final Appraisal Seminar for Tenure Track Assistant Professor Joanna Bergström


People interact with the world by moving around, pointing to address, touching to feel, and grasping to manipulate. We point with a mouse to select, move an avatar’s hand to feel what we can do with a virtual body, press and swipe a touchscreen to manipulate mobile phone’s apps, or teleport to move between rooms in virtual reality. This provides fundamental challenges for designing how to give feedback so that interaction with the computer is effective, comfortable, and learnable. In this talk, I will introduce my research agenda and present my work on it during the past four years as a tenure-track assistant professor. I will also present my plans on advancing this agenda in the future, both in research and teaching at DIKU.
