Radu-Daniel Vatavu's Homepage

I am a Professor of Computer Science at the University Stefan cel Mare of Suceava, Romania, European Union, where I conduct research in Human-Computer Interaction, Ambient Intelligence, and Entertainment Computing. I received a Habilitation to Direct Research (HDR) in Computer Science.
I direct the Machine Intelligence and Information Visualization Research Lab of the MANSiD Research Center.

While I am broadly interested in Human-Computer Interaction, I have focused prioritarily on developing gesture technology and conducting gesture studies to design effective interaction with computing systems. I am fascinated by humans' capacity to articulate subtle, highly-crafted, meaningful gestures and to use them effectively for real-world interaction and communication. I am also interested in designing for ambient intelligence, new interactive media, and interactive TV application scenarios.
