Features Shipped

We work closely with teams across Apple. Here are select features and experiences, used by millions of people, where we've made contributions:

Other Features

Vision Pro— we are part of a large cross-functional team making contributions to research and development in hand interactions and novel input.
Mac Studio— prior to joining our team, Mike was an integral part in shipping Mac Studio while at Hardware Engineering (Firmware and Diags).
Spatial Audio— prior to joining our team, Keyu was an integral part in shipping Spatial Audio (AirPods Pro) while at Core Motion.

Research Overview

Prior to Apple, I have published over 35 papers in the intersection of sensing, interactive systems, and machine learning. My dissertation is titled: Context-Driven Implicit Interactions.


My team and I publish at premier venues in interactive systems, human-computer interaction, and machine learning. Below are highlights (note: projects have no connections with Apple unless specified). See CV for a full list.

Please see Curriculum Vitae for a full list of publications.

Join Our Group

My group's research agenda at Apple, combined with unmatched access to many of the world's most innovative products, puts us in a unique position to impact millions of people. I am looking for driven, highly creative, and highly collaborative candidates. I have positions available for interns, post-docs, and full-time research scientists + engineers. I welcome candidates with backgrounds in HCI, machine learning, electrical engineering, and related fields. I strongly encourage candidates from non-traditional and underrepresented backgrounds to apply.

My group has positions available in Pittsburgh, Seattle, Cupertino, and Israel. If interested, email me directly.


My idea of a happy life is being with family and friends, travelling, learning, and pursuing creative projects. I'm currently into photography— here a few of my favorite shots. High-res versions are available upon request.
