About me

Daniel Mendes, PhD Candidate

I am a PhD Student at Instituto Superior Técnico since 2013. Received my MSc (2011) and BSc (2008) degrees in Information Systems and Computer Science from Instituto Superior Técnico / Univertsity of Lisbon. I am also a researcher in the Visualization and Intelligent Multimodal Interfaces Group (VIMMI) at INESC-ID Lisbon. My main interest areas are virtual reality, multimodal interfaces, 3D user interfaces and touch / gesture-based interactions. I am member of ACM since 2013, IEEE since 2014 and Eurographics since 2015. I was in the organization committee of the Eurographics 2016 conference as chair of student volunteers.
