Keith Vertanen

Hello and welcome! I'm an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at Michigan Tech. Here you can find information about my research, including publications and software. You can also find out what I do for fun, including photography and travel.

I specialize in designing intelligent interactive systems that leverage uncertain input technologies. A particular focus of my research is on systems that enhance the capabilities of users with permanent or situationally-induced disabilities. My broader interests include human-computer interaction (HCI), speech and language processing, mobile interfaces, and crowdsourcing.

What's new:

Video highlights:
