My thesis topic is about gestural and instrumental interaction in which gestures are considered as instruments that can be created, configured and used on the fly for content selection and editing. The studies on gestures I perform are focused on human motor and cognitive skills as well as system recognition accuracy on touchscreen devices such as smartphones and tablets.
