His research areas are human factors and human computer interaction with a special focus on innovation, e-health and usability of new technology.  Much of the research and development work has focused on  the use of eye-tracking technology for disabled people, initiating the EU Network of excellence “Communication by Gaze Interaction” (COGAIN), with approximately 100 researchers participating. Three of his former PhD students formed a start-up company, The Eye Tribe, in 2011.  Together with this company John is currently working on innovative gaze tracking products in collaboration with LEGO and Serious Games Interactive, among others. 


The Bevica Foundation will support Johns professorship for 5 years, during which he will establish a research initiative “GazeIT” aiming to improve the quality of life for people with severe motor challenges by use of gaze and voice interaction for communication, mobility and smart home technologies.
