Aditya is a Phd student in the Embodied Interaction Group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and Saarland University. He received his MSc degree in Computer Science from the University of Calgary in Canada and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science & Engineering from M.S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology in India. During his Master studies, he worked on various HCI research projects focusing on spatial interaction techniques for 3D physical maps and mobile interaction techniques. He also spent three months at the Xerox Research Center in India working on novel mobile interaction techniques for visually impaired users.
Aditya’s research interests include physical computing, tangible user interfaces, and mobile interaction techniques. He is interested in creating novel physical interfaces that can embed themselves into our ubiquitous computing environments.

Like a Second Skin
Like a Second Skin presents psycho-physical findings about how epidermal devices of various elasticity and thickness affect human tactile perception. Findings can guide the design and material selection of future epidermal devices
Multi-Touch Skin is a thin and flexible multi-touch sensor for on-skin input. The thin and flexible multi-touch sensor can be customized in size and shape to fit various locations on the body.
SkinMarks are thin and conformal skin electronics for on-body interaction. They enable precisely localized input and visual output on strongly curved and elastic body landmarks.
