Our work is fundamentally about communication. How might we combine digital and analog media to convey information, insights and emotions? How might we create engaging and captivating experiences through modern information technology?

But much work remains when it comes to designing visual and immersive communication using contemporary technology. We explore immersive and augmented information spaces, and multimodal interaction between humans and AI, always focusing on the use experience.

Another main research topic is image reproduction. Reproducing images correctly in print requires models of the interaction between ink, light and paper. Current printing technology enables printing in 2.5D and 3D by mixing materials with different optical properties. Faithfully reproducing not only color but also realistic texture, gloss and opacity requires even more complicated models taking into account the optical properties of the materials. This field, often called appearance printing, is central to our research.
