meMy name is Steven Houben and I currently live and work in Copenhagen. I work on a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction at the Pervasive Interaction Technology Lab (pIT) at IT University of Copenhagen under supervision of Prof. Dr. Jakob Bardram. My research interests lie on the intersection of human-computer interactionubiquitous computing and computer supported cooperative work and is focused towards the theory, design, construction and evaluation of activity-centric computing interfaces, systems and infrastructures that support real work practices. More general, I am interested in (distributed) user interface technology, large public displays and mobile and nomadic computing.

I am currently finishing my PhD and am looking for new research opportunities. Please email me for a detailed resume and research statement.
