Mohamed Khamis

Welcome to my homepage! My name is Mohamed Khamis, I research in Human-Computer Interaction. I am a PhD student at the University of Munich, currently researching in the fields of pervasive displays and gaze-based interaction. My PhD is supervised by Prof. Dr. Florian Alt from the Media Informatics Group in the University of Munich, and Dr. Andreas Bulling from the Perceptual User Interfaces Group in Max Planck Institute for Informatics.

Research Interests

I work in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). My main focus at the moment is gaze-based interaction with pervasive displays. I am interested in coming up with non-cumbersome ways to enable users to interact with displays using their eyes. I also do side projects in haptic interfaces and usable security.
