A recent Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures graduate from Abertay University working at Dell Secureworks as a Security Analyst. The main focus of my research throughout university has been to make computing and security easier for the general public. It is not enough to tell them the issues, what is needed is to explain to them how to take control.

I am a research in HCI (Human Computer Interaction), currently a Leverhulme Trust fellow in the Bristol Interaction and Graphics group (UK). I spent two years at the Hasso Plattner Institute (Germany) and did my Ph.D at Telecom ParisTech group (France). I believe future interactive devices will vary in form factors and technologies. My research aims at shaping the software and hardware of these future devices. In particular, I focus on non-planar and self-actuated devices. I studied touch on spherical surfaces, I built a force feedback touchscreen that translates the user’s finger and I currently design shape changing flexible devices. My research approach is a blend of theory, experimentation, and software/hardware design. Through my work, I intent to help designers create the best possible interfaces and devices we will soon have in our hands. Learn more about Anne Roudaut on Crunchbase…
