Prospective Student

Students interested in HCI and Visualization are welcome to contact me by e-mail to explore the possibility to become my student and a SACHI member and obtain a PhD. Please, refer in your e-mail to one or more topics of interest. It will also help if you have ideas in mind about example projects to do in those areas and/or specific research questions of interest. All requests that are not completely off-topic (e.g., I am not interested academically in cloud-computing performance) will be answered.

As a student in the SACHI group we demand hard work, but you can also expect:

  • Personal supervision (one-on-one meetings on a weekly basis)
  • Support in becoming a proficient academic writer
  • Support to visit relevant academic conferences
  • Belonging to a dynamic and collaborative group of researchers (academics and students)

My topics of interest are:

  • Human-Computer Interaction
  1. Input Technologies (multi-point interaction, object spatial manipulation, gestural interfaces, haptics, gaze-contingent displays)
  2. Output Technologies and new devices (multi-display environments, gaze-contingent displays)
  3. Visual Perception applied to HCI
  • Information Visualization
  1. Spatial visual manipulation
  2. Typographyc elements of information visualization (see also FatFonts)
  3. Visual Perception applied to HCI
  • Applications
  1. Cognitive augmentation
  2. Digital tourism
  3. Private and public interaction
If you are curious about what it is like to live in the St Andrews area, you can read my impressions.

If you have a strong desire to make an impact in any of these areas (or related), please contact me by e-mail at: mans@cs.st-andrews.ac.uk.
