I am looking for graduate students (PhD or Master) to join my ubicomp lab. If you are interested, please setup a meeting with me. You can send me an email at (, or simply try to catch me in my office at CSIE 518. I am looking for students with the following qualifications: (1) can learn practically anything needed to do a good research, (2) can do hardware and software prototypes -> “show me a cool demonstration of your idea”, and (3) have good English reading & writing skills. My general research area is in ubiquitous computing (ubicomp). If you like to know more about ubicomp, please browse through first few papers in my Spring 2004 ubicomp course. To get an understanding of my research style and projects, you can read my orientation presentation to incoming students last semester.
