Panasonic Corporation, Japan
Her research interests are human machine interface, music information science, and neural processing for music and emotion in the brain. She has developed authoring system for multimedia contents, and has created first-ever titles for brand-new hardware which entered into the market in the world (DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Multimedia game machine, etc.). She is in the research and development department of Panasonic Corporation.
University of California Santa Cruz, USA
Her primary research interest can be described as HCI for people with special needs. Specifically, her research focuses in three main areas:
- Developing a series of theories to predict how older persons and people with disabilities interact with computers and their applications (including the Internet)-and developing artifacts to validate those theories/models.
- Developing theory-driven systems that alleviate functional limitations experienced by young children, older persons, people with disabilities, and people in extraordinary circumstance (e.g., people whose first language is not English needing to access English websites).
- Evaluating existing or designed artifacts with people with special needs (in a controlled experiment or in context) to observe usability problems, and user behaviour and attitude, for the purpose of gaining a truer and deeper understanding of the problems experienced by these people.
