I have a mixed background: I graduated and got a master in Architecture and then I did a PhD in Electronics. My master thesis title was : A virtual reality system for three dimensional design. My PhD thesis was: An analysis of hand gestures for implementation in a user interface. I was awarded the degree from the School of Architecture and the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Sheffield.
I am a researcher with drive and determination possessing a fertile mind and imagination with the ability to come up with novel approaches and solutions over a broad range of disciplines.

My objectives

To establish a career in a research driven environment, which encourages innovative ideas and multidisciplinary projects, where my mixed background will be an asset especially my expertise at coming up rapidly with solutions and prototypes. I would like to continue exploit my combined expertise in the area of Robotics, Cognitive Systems, Shape Changing Interfaces and Responsive Environments.
