Endpoint Prediction Using Motion Kinematics
Dr. Edward Lank is an Assistant Professor in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. His research is in the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), including applications of tablet computing, the study of motion kinematics in interfaces, and the design of pervasive computing applications.
Prior to joining the faculty at Waterloo, Dr. Lank was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at San Francisco State University (2002 - 2006), was a research intern at the Palo Alto Research Center in the Perceptual Document Analysis Area (2001); was Chief Technical Officer of MediaShell Corporation, a Queen's University research start-up (2000 - 2001); and was an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Computing and Information Science at Queen's University (1997 - 2001). He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada in 2001 under the supervision of Dr. Dorothea Blostein. He also holds a Bachelor's Degree in Physics, a Minor in Computer Science, and a Diploma in Engineering from the University of Prince Edward Island.
