Gesture interaction has arguably become a popular style on mobile devices. Such popularity has increasingly raised many research questions in discussions of gesture interaction such as gesture learning, modelling, recognition and design. In this talk, I will focus on gesture design for mobile interaction and will introduce two of my studies in this topic, i.e. pen and finger gesture design and body gesture design. The purpose of my work is to design more efficient gesture-driven interfaces for mobile interaction.

Huawei Tu is an associate professor in Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in China. He received his PhD degree in Kochi University of Technology, Japan in 2012. He has been a postdoc researcher in Ritsumeikan University of Japan and Swansea University of the U.K. between 2012 and 2014.  His research interests lie in Human-computer Interaction, with a focus on gesture interaction, touch interaction, pen interaction, user interface design and human error. His work has been published in top tier conferences and journals of the Human-computer Interaction field such as ACM TOCHI and ACM CHI.
