About

I'm an Associate Professor in Information and Communications Technology at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. I spend most of my research time at the MIH Media Lab as one of the lab's directors. I focus on new media technologies: applying cutting-edge research in Telecommunications, Signal Theory and Software Engineering to the emerging ways in which humans communicate with each other and with computers. Web applications, mobile technology, and futuristic stuff like augmented reality (AR) are what drive me.
