The main objective of my research is to investigate the effect of situational impairments on mobile interaction, and improve the accessibility and usability of off-the-shelf mobile devices for those temporarily affected by different contextual factors (e.g., noise, ambient temperature, encumbrance, etc.). In my work, I am interested in finding novel techniques and methodologies to accommodate and overcome these situational impairments. In this talk I will provide an overview of the different situational impairments that affect mobile interaction and present my work in this area.
Zhanna Sarsenbayeva is a PhD student in the Interaction Design Lab at the University of Melbourne, and is supervised by Dr. Jorge Goncalves and Prof. Vassilis Kostakos. Her research focuses mostly on the impact of situational impairments on mobile interaction, ways of detecting and accommodating those situational impairments during interaction with mobile devices. She is also interested in context sensing and affective computing. Zhanna received the BSc in Computer Science from University College London, UK and the MSc in Computer Science and Engineering from University of Oulu, Finland.
