Personal profile

Introduction

Bruno Dumas obtained his PhD in computer science in 2010 at the University of Fribourg, in Switzerland. His thesis focused on the creation of multimodal interfaces, along three axes: software architectures for multimodal interfaces, multimodal interaction modelling, and multimodal fusion algorithms. He then worked for four years as a post-doc researcher at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, In Belgium, where he deepened his knowledge of cross-media interactive systems and interactive pens. His main research domains revolve around human-computer interaction, multimodal interfaces, information visualisation as well as how the evolution of IT impacts users in their daily life. 

Areas of expertise

  • Multimodal interaction
  • Multimodal interaction modelling
  • Adaptation of interfaces to users and context
  • Tangible interaction
  • Information visualisation
  • Smart cities
