Anind Dey is an assistant professor in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon. He received a Ph.D. in computer science in 2000 and an M.S. in aerospace engineering in 1995 from Georgia Tech. His research interests lie at the intersection of human-computer interaction and ubiquitous computing, focusing on how to make novel technologies more usable and useful. In particular, he builds tools that make it easier to build useful ubiquitous computing applications and supporting end users in controlling their ubiquitous computing systems.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
"Much of the work in the field of ubiquitous computing focuses on how to build 'cool' technologies and applications that support new services for users. Instead, I believe that these technologies can be used to solve problems that we deal with today in everyday life. QoLT offers an abundance of opportunities to work with like-minded individuals in addressing important issues with elders and elder care."
