Note: As of March 1, 2003, I have left Stanford University. I am now at RWTH Aachen in Germany. See my new home page there: Jan Borchers at RWTH Aachen.

I am a computer scientist working in the Interactivity Lab at Stanford. I'm interested in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), in particular interaction design for new media—making the Brave New World of ubiquitous, post-desktop computing useful by making it usable.

Students: See my list of cool project ideas and openings!
