5th International Meeting of Research in Design

Universidad Icesi, October 25 - 27 of 2012


Wendy Ju

Wendy Ju is a PhD graduate of the Center for Design Research at Stanford University, and the founder of Ambidextrous Magazine, Stanford University's Journal of Design. Her current research in the areas of physical interaction design and ubiquitous computing investigates how implicit interactions can enable novel and natural interfaces through the intentional management of attention and initiative. Wendy's work at the MIT Media Lab on an interactive kitchen counter was the direct predecessor to Microsoft's Kitchen of the Future console, and her work with Remhi Post and Matt Reynolds on the Pengachu handheld Linux platform strongly influenced both Motorola's Linux phone development and the MIT's One Laptop Per Child initiative. She studied Product Design and Mechanical Engineering as an undergraduate at Stanford. Her interests involve Embodied Interaction, Interaction Design Techniques and Transdisciplinary Design Education.

Jaime Oliver

Jaime Oliver has a doctor’s degree in computer music from University of California, San Diego and is currently a Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow in composition at Columbia University in New York, where he teaches and researches. His research explores the concept of musical instrument in electronic and computer music, designing instruments that watch, listen, understand, remember and answer. His works Tambor Silencioso and MANO, use image analysis techniques to follow and classify hand gestures. He has taken part in various festivals and international conferences, in a field of action that spans sound performance and installation, composing and performing music, and programming open source software. Research interests: Computer/electroacoustic aesthetics, live computer music performance practice, musical instruments, ecological/embodied perception, sonification, gesture, video tracking.

Michael Gurevich

Michael Gurevich is Assistant Professor of Performing Arts Technology at the University of Michigan’s School of Music, Theatre and Dance, where he teaches courses in media art and physical computing, and directs the Electronic Chamber Music ensemble. His research is centered around designing, studying and composing for interactive music systems. Framed through the interdisciplinary lens of Interaction Design, his work explores new aesthetic and interactional possibilities that can emerge in performance with real-time computer systems. Michael completed his M.A., Ph.D. and postdoc at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University, and has been a Lecturer at the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) at Queen’s University Belfast, as well as a research scientist at the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) in Singapore. He is an active author, editor and peer reviewer in the New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME), computer music and human-computer interaction (HCI) communities, and served as Music Chair for NIME 2012 in Ann Arbor.
