Gyanendra is currently working with Professors Chris Riedl and Brooke Foucault Welles on mapping signals for emergent leadership in team meeting scenarios. He received his PhD in Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. His thesis was focused on designing spatial interaction mechanisms in the context of large scale immersive spaces. Gyanendra is primarily interested in areas of human centered computing, i.e. multi-modal interaction, non-verbal human behavior and group dynamics.
