Hello!
I'm Biswaksen Patnaik.

 

Hi! I am Biswaksen.


I am a Master's Candidate in Human-Computer Interactions at the University of Maryland College Park. I am interested in designing novel interaction paradigms for humans to interact with information. I am especially interested in building systems that employ multi-sensory interactions. Over the years, I have worked with various research labs around the world in the domain of muti-sensory interactions - Taste(Gustation), Touch (Tactile/Haptic Interactions), Smell (Olfaction) and Vision (Visualization).

Human-Computer Interaction | Multi-Sensory Interaction | Ubiquitous Computing | Data Physicalization | Tangible User Interfaces

 ABOUT ME

My research vision is based on the framework of Phenomenology which studies the ways in which our physical and social environment, and the elements present in them matter for our cognition. 

My interest in Multi-Sensory Interactions stems from the Extended-Mind Hypothesis portrayed in Phenomenology that describes cognition as not only being in the mind but also being shaped by extra-neural bodily and environmental factors.

Designing multi-sensory pathways for cognition shall help us perceive information better, improve our peripheral awareness and help us overcome the bounds of situational impairment and accessibility.

I would be happy to talk to you!
