Name:Klen Čopič Pucihar

I am associate professor at the Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies at the University of Primorska in Koper, Slovenia where I also co-direct HCI laboratory HICUP Lab. In pursuit of the vision above I do multidisciplinary research in the area of Human-Computer Interaction. I am interested in how to best use ever increasing computation resources and augment human abilities to collaborate, communicate and transfer knowledge. In pursuit of this goal, I look at ways of creating interaction systems that would best understand and react to users’ needs and expectations. I try to achieve this through research in: (i) manipulation of light and matter to generate meaningful and believable AR and MR experiences that go beyond realism; (ii) human perception and cognition to create or propose benchmarks for best humanly perceivable systems; (iii) combining user studies with a multitude of sensing modalities (e.g. radar sensing, eye gaze tracking, facial expression analysis, etc.) and computational thinking – abstraction, automation, and analysis – to design, explain and enable interaction systems.
