Kasper Hornbæk is a professor at the Human-centered Computing section at the University of Copenhagen. His research interests are human-computer interaction, usability research and information visualization; detours include eye tracking, cultural usability, and reality-based interfaces. Kasper serves on the editorial boards of ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction kash[at]


Joanna Bergstrom Lehtovirta (Post Doc) works with skin-based interfaces. She is interested in human movement and perception, and aims to formalise user’s sensorimotor performance in models that can help in understanding HCI and in designing user interfaces. Joanna received her D.Sc. from Aalto University, Finland, before joining University of Copenhagen.


Jarrod Knibbe (Post Doc) conducts research into Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), where he is exploring pose-creation, auto-calibration, and user perception. Alongside this, Jarrod is working closely with colleagues from the Centre for Subjectivity Research to use novel technologies to explore and exploit our body image and schema, and our sense of control.



Henning Pohl (Post Doc) is interested in low-engagement interactions. He works on casual interaction interfaces for the body, such as subtle feedback mechanisms.


Aske Mottelson’s (PhD Fellow) research topics include affective computing, virtual reality, and crowdsourcing. Aske connects aspects of computational methods with psychological theory. Aske did both his BSc (2013) and MSc (2015) in computer science at University of Copenhagen.


Paul Strohmeier (PhD Fellow) is interested in Soft Electronics, Haptic Feedback and Perception. His research reflects his interest in both hardware prototyping as well as the phenomenology of perception. He completed his Msc at Queen’s University, Kingston and his BA at University College Maastricht


Klemen Lilija
(PhD Fellow) is interested in wearables and interactive systems, which put human movement in the forefront. He currently conducts research in augmented reality. Klemen received his Msc from TU Berlin and KTH, Stockholm.


Jess McIntosh (Post Doc) explores methods for detecting hand gestures, with a particular focus on the ergonomics and practicality of such devices. One key aspect of this is to make sure these sensing techniques can integrate with wrist-worn devices, in order to meet the requirements of a socially acceptable form factor. His other research interests include object recognition and ultrasound sensing and actuating systems.
