Amit Ghimire

Masters' Student
Computer Science

I am a Master's student in the Department of Computer Science at UBC. I did my Bachelor's in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Tribhuvan University in Nepal. Working as a software engineer developing VR/AR applications for 4 years after my graduation in 2017, I realized the importance of human factors in design and developed an acute interest in designing interfaces and products focusing on the users of the systems. Hence I am pursuing my graduate study in Computer Science focusing on Human Computer Interaction to learn about human centered design.

Research Interests

I am particularly interested in exploring the applications next generation computing platforms(such as AR/VR) in transforming how we collaborate and communicate with others. My research interest intersects the domains of Human Computer Interaction, Post-WIMP interfaces and interaction, and social computing.
