For my DREU this summer, I'm working with Celine Latulipe in the department of Software and Information Systems at UNCC. Professor Latulipe works specifically in the Human Computer Interaction lab. She has a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo. She is particularly interested in researching novel ways to interact with computers. In addition, she has done a lot of work with creativity support tools. She has investigated two-handed interaction (multiple mice) in conjuction with creativity support tools.

The main project I'm working on is Dance.Draw. See link for more info. The Dance.Draw project uniquely combines HCI (Human Computer Interaction) with dance and explores alternate means of interaction with a computer. Currently, I'm working on a desktop app/GUI. See my blog for more detailed info! See the project page for an overview of the project.
