Research Topics


Current Research Topics (draft) (2015)

Currently, we work on the following topics to integrate digital technologies with spaces, things, and social fabrics of urban and suburban communities, aiming at addressing their social and environmental problems. 

1. Supporting Richer Ecologies of Participation in Smart Communities

In this thread of research, we develop pervasive computing environments for supporting richer ecologies of participation in ‘hybrid’ digital-physical communities based on participatory design.

2. Mobile Crowdsourcing in Context

In this thread of research, we develop mobile crowdsourcing apps for local communities based on context-aware computing, community-based processes, and social awareness.

3. Sensing Atmosphere

In this thread of research, we are exploring novel methods to sense the atmospheres of POPS.

4. Information Delivery & Visualization
