Hi! I’m Huy.

I’m a Ph.D. candidate and Research Associate at the Interaction Lab at the University of Stuttgart. I specialize in Human-Computer Interaction.

I use my background in software engineering to conduct research on improving touch interfaces on mobile devices. In particular, I develop and explore a wide range of novel interaction techniques on mobile devices driven by state-of-the-art machine learning. Most recently, I combine this with the raw data of mutual capacitive touchscreens to identify the source of touch which enables interesting applications. For example, intended palm touches can be used to provide useful shortcuts and improve reachability while being perceived as natural and intuitive by users. I am also interested in modeling touch interaction and hand ergonomics to improve how users interact with mobile devices.

Prior to my Ph.D. work starting in late 2015, I completed a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Software Engineering at the University of Stuttgart. Don’t hesitate to contact me in case of any questions!
