Morphui is a database of papers at the intersection between Human Computer Interaction and Material Science. Click on the subject symbols to explore the papers in these categories. Collaboration between fields can lead to an acceleration of research and Human Computer Interaction should meet Material Science.


Note on authors:

Isabel Qamar is a Research Associate at CSAIL, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She has a background in Aerospace Engineering and undertook her PhD within the Advanced Composites Collaboration for Innovation and Science (ACCIS) at Bristol developing 3D printed vascular networks for self-healing polymeric materials. Her research focuses on the development and application of colour-changing and shape-changing materials.

Anne Roudaut is a lecturer in Computer Science, Leverhulme Trust fellow and co-leader of the Bristol Interaction Group. She spent two years at the Hasso Plattner Institute and did her Ph.D at Telecom ParisTech. Future interactive devices will vary in form factors and technologies and she has contributed seminal work on shape changing interfaces. Her research aims at shaping the software and hardware of these future devices.

Rainer Groh is a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow based at the Bristol Composites Institute (ACCIS) of the University of Bristol. He received a PhD in Advanced Composites from Bristol exploring the potential of fibre-steered carbon composites for lightweighting of aerospace structures. He is now researching the use of instabilities as a means of embedding shape-changing functionality in materials and structures.

David Holman is a research scientist at Tactual Labs. He holds a PhD from Queen’s University and was a member of the Human Media Lab, one of Canada’s premier multidisciplinary media laboratories. He designed and prototyped next generation product concepts at Intel Corporation. His early research in digital-paper interaction led to the development of Organic User Interfaces, a new paradigm in Human-Computer Interaction, and the world’s first interactive paper-like computer.
