Bruno Dumas is a lecturer and senior researcher in the Web & Information System Engineering laboratory (WISE), at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) in Belgium. With Prof. Beat Signer and phd student Lode Hoste, he works on research include Multimodal Interaction, Tangible Interaction and Cross-Media Information Spaces. He is also in charge of the master-level course on Next Generation User Interfaces.
He received his PhD in Computer Science in the DIVA research lab at the University of Fribourg in 2010. His PhD research was centered around fusion of multimodal input, along three different axes: architectures, modelling and algorithms. The study of these axes lead to the development of a framework for creation of multimodal interfaces (HephaisTK), a XML-based language for the modelling of multimodal human-machine interaction (SMUIML), as well as the development of adaptivity-capable multimodal fusion algorithms.
