Hello, my name is Erik Paluka. I am a graduate student in computer science.
I generally develop using these languages/APIs:
English - Native Language
French - 12 years of French Immersion
C++ and OpenGL
* Languages of Choice
I am currently working on my
master's degree in computer science
at the Univerisity of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). I have been a member of the Visualization for Information Analysis lab (vialab
) under the supervision of
Dr. Christopher Collins
since May 2011.
I received my Bachelor of Science (B.Sc. Honours) in Computer Science specializing in Digital Media from the Univerisity of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in 2012. My senior honours thesis project, "Enhancing Tandem Language Learning Using an Interactive Tabletop", dealt with the tandem language learning model and interactive surfaces.
My research interests lie within the realm of human-computer interaction, specifically interactive surfaces (multi-touch devices) and user interface/experience design. I am also interested in ubiquitous computing, interaction techniques, information visualization, augmented and virtual reality, and robotics.
I am a member of the vialab research reading group at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.
