I am thrilled to announce that I have recently been awarded an NSF CAREER (short for: Faculty Early Career Development Program) grant in the IIS Division entitled “Natural User Interfaces for Children.” This grant will fund my lab’s research over the next 5 years, and form the foundation of my long-term research agenda, on natural interactions for children, ranging from touchscreen interaction, whole-body interaction, and multimodal interaction. Keep an eye on the INIT Lab website for updates!

I am excited to announce that my colleague Quincy Brown and I have recently been awarded an NSF Human-Centered Computing grant (under IIS Core Programs) to fund the Mobile Touch and Gesture Interaction for Children (MTAGIC) project! This collaborative grant, which officially began September 1st, is titled “Mobile Gesture Interaction for Kids: Sensing, Recognition, and Error Recovery.” It will fund research over 3 years to continue our investigation of differences in how children (ages 5-13) and adults use mobile touchscreen interactions (e.g., touch and gesture), as well as to design and develop new intelligent user interfaces and interactions to better support kids’ use of touchscreens based on our investigations. Keep an eye on the MTAGIC project blog for updates on our research!
