Dr. Fahim Kawsar leads the Internet of Things research activity at Bell Labs. His current work focuses on building human centred software architectures, applications and interaction tools with awareness technologies (sensor-actuator-perception algorithm) in the cross-section of Ubiquitous Computing and Human Computer Interaction. He has a keen interest in understanding what aspects of system infrastructure can be part of the user experience and what design and interaction rationales lead to such system. Fahim's work has been published widely in international books and journals, presented at conferences across the world and has had projects commissioned. Fahim has a PhD in Computer Science from Waseda University, has worked before at Nokia Research, and Lancaster University.
