Erik Paluka

Graduate Student

To check out my current and past work, go to my personal website at www.erikpaluka.com

My research interests deal with human-computer interaction, specifically multi-touch and spatial interaction, and information visualization. I completed a master’s degree and a bachelor’s degree in computer science at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). During this time, I spent over four years as a member of the Visualization for Information Analysis lab (vialab) under the supervision of Dr. Christopher Collins.
