Steve manages the Sensors and Devices group at MSR Cambridge and is interested in a broad range of technologies within the themes of ubiquitous computing and interaction. These include novel sensors, flexible electronics, new displays, wireless communications, ubiquitous and mobile devices. The cross-disciplinary group aims to leverage its skills across both hardware and software layers to deliver compelling new user experiences, collaborating with researchers from other labs and different disciplines where appropriate. The ultimate goal of this research is to better understand how advances in technology will impact traditional computing and the ways in which people use and interact with computing devices.
