Mobile Human-Computer Interaction (Mobile HCI) is one of the most prevailing research areas across disciplines in recent years. A good research in the area requires not only understanding of users' information processing capability and their behaviors, but also familiarity of limitations and specifications of new innovative systems. Ideally, it is better to have a team with engineers, designers and social scientists working together for Mobile HCI studies. However, it is not an easy practice. The purpose of the presentation is to explore how to conduct multidisciplinary research for innovative mobile media and applications. The talk will present some of the presenter's published work to illustrate new mobile interaction services and applications to synergize engineering and behavioral science research for interactive system design such as mobile augmented reality games.
Dr. Duh is the deputy director (research) of KEIO-NUS CUTE Centre and, a joint faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Interactive and Digital Media Institute at National University of Singapore. He received his degrees in psychology, design and engineering respectively. After finishing his PhD, he went to NASA-Johnson Space Centre as a postdoctoral fellow involving in virtual reality training project. Dr. Duh is a Senior Member of both ACM and IEEE, the Singapore Representative of the International Federation of Information Processing Technical Committee on Human- Computer Interaction (IFIP TC13: HCI) and the immediate past Chairman of the ACM Singapore Chapter. He is the Associate Editor of ACM Entertainment in Computer and published more than 60 conference and journal papers in HCI area. His current research focuses on user experience, interaction design, and gaming effects in mobile systems. Dr. Duh is a private pilot and certified advanced ground instructor by the FAA.
