Titel på avhandling: 
Simple Haptics: Sketching Perspectives for the Design of Haptic Interactions
Beskrivning av avhandling: 


The PhD thesis will be presented 30 October 2012 and is available online at

Designing haptic interfaces is absolutely not trivial. It typically requires knowledge in psychophysics, interaction design and engineering. Despite an already established research field designers are generally unfamiliar with the haptic domain. My PhD project aims at exploring how designers can best embrace and design for that modality. My research inquiries investigate new tools, approaches and building blocks to sketch, understand, explore, experiment quickly and develop a design sensitivity to haptics.

I started my doctoral studies in the Fall of 2007 and plan to graduate in late 2012. My advisors are Daniel Fällman (Interactive Institute Umeå) and Bill Buxton (Microsoft Research).

Biography/Background Camille Mousette
Born in Montreal, Canada. Hyperactive by nature, Camille Moussette likes the blurry connections between humans, atoms and bits. He holds a Physics degree, a bachelor in Industrial Design and a Masters in Interaction Design. His work experience includes microelectronics R&D (IBM and NRC Canada), web consulting and various involvement in projects ranging from building architectural snow structures in Scandinavia and Italy, to exploring the design of new haptic interfaces at Microsoft Research. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Industrial Design researching haptic interfaces and teaching classes in Experience Prototyping, Hardware Sketching and Design Ethnography at the Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden.
