Professor Anind K. DeyAnind K. Dey, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor in the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. His interests are: feedback and control in ubiquitous computing, context-aware computing, toolkits and end-user programming environments, sensor-rich environments, information overload, ambient displays, privacy, and human-computer interaction. He is on the Editorial Board of the Personal and Ubiquitous Computing journal.
His current projects are: ambient displays, augmenting a wheelchair and its environment to enhance communication, designing user interfaces for the setting of privacy preferences in ubiquitous computing environments, programming support for context-aware and sensor-rich environments (toolkits and programming environments), and visualizations of sensor networks.
Anind earned his Bachelors of Applied Science in Computer Engineering from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, Canada in 1993. He earned his Masters of Science in AeroSpace Engineering from Georgia Tech in 1995. He earned his 2nd Masters of Science and a Ph.D. in Computer Science at Georgia Tech in 2000. For his dissertation, he researched programming support for building context-aware applications: The Context Toolkit.
He was a member of the Future Computing Environments research group in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. He was a Senior Researcher at Intel Research Berkeley from 2001 to 2004, where his title was Ubicomp Software Architect. At the same time, he was an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the EECS Department at UC Berkeley, where he was a member of GUIR, the Group for User Interface Research.
Anind authored Providing Architectural Support for Building Context-Aware Applications, Understanding and Using Context, Enabling the Use of Context in Interactive Applications, and Context-Aware Computing: The CyberDesk Project, coauthored Designer Support for Context Monitoring and Control, SiteView: Tangibly Programming Active Environments with Predictive Visualization, Context-Awareness in Wearable and Ubiquitous Computing, Distributed and Disappearing User Interfaces in Ubiquitous Computing, The What, Who, Where, When, Why and How of Context-Awareness, and Managing Personal Information Disclosure in Ubiquitous Computing Environments, and coedited Ambient Intelligence: European Conference, AmI 2007, Darmstadt, Germany, November 7–10, 2007, Proceedings.
