Carleton University (CU), Ottawa, Canada, houses the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies (IIS). My studies, in the Cognitive Science PhD Program have been interrupted in 2004 due to financial and personal problems.
(proposed) Thesis topic: Active and Intelligent interfaces. There are a handful of hard problems in Cognitive Science that I keep poking at, for my own curiosity. And CHI is an excellent approach for gathering data on Knowledge Engineering and Situated Agents. And if the results spill into practical applications, so much the better.
Publications: I never found the time to bring papers to formal publication standards, but I did write quite a bit of course papers, scattered commentary (some of which I may polish some day into publishable papers), and even some older poems and fiction.
Personal: I'm a Romanian (ex-)married to a Bulgarian and our kid is hearing only English (our common language). I like programming and sci-fi/fantasy and cycling and role-playing/strategy gaming and more
