Join the Team to Fabricate the Future Interfaces

We explore future interfaces that will replace our current interactions with intelligent systems and daily objects. It involves designing novel interfaces that can leverage human dexterity and sensor system, and building new fabrication technologies to enable exploring the novel interfaces. We do it by actively adopting technologies from other fields, such as material science, architecture, biology, art, etc.

Join the team, and let's design the future together. For inquiries or informal chats about positions, please contact me at [at] with [application] header to help me not miss the email. Please attach your CV and an online portfolio if applicable.

An ideal candidate has:

  • a relevant degree in Computer Science, Material Science, Mechanical Engineering, Architecture, Design, or related field (or is about to obtain the degree)

  • good team working and communication skills

  • creativity and independence

  • technical skills such as programming and fabrication


I am writing funding applications to have more funded positions and collaborations. If you are interested in writing joint applications, please do not hesitate to contact me.

PhD Student

I do not currently hold secure funding to finance a PhD student. However, the School of Computer Science funds a number of PhD students every year, and applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Check out this page for opportunities here.

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am always looking for outstanding postdoctoral researchers.

Even though you are not self-funded, there are funding opportunities for a postdoctoral researcher, such as EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowship, Newton International Fellowships, and Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship. If you are interested in preparing funding proposals with me, please drop me an email.

MSc and UG Student

If you are an HCI MSc or an undergraduate student at the University of Birmingham and are interested in doing the final project with me, drop me an email before the supervisor preference input.

Visiting Scholars

I welcome students and researchers from worldwide to exchange knowledge and seek collaboration. There are a number of funding schemes to support visits, such as the Royal Society Wolfson Fellowship and Royal Society Wolfson Visiting Fellowship.
