Dr. Andujar's BIO

Dr. Marvin Andujar (Dr. A) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering Department and Research Lab Director of the Neuro-Machine Interaction Lab in the at the University of South Florida, Tampa, FL. His research expertise is on Human-Computer Interaction/Human-Centered Computing with an emphasis emerging interactions such as Brain-Computer Interfaces and immersive interactions. His research’s goal is to design, develop, and investigate how user’s daily life can be improved through emerging interactions. His research expands to applications in education, gaming, engagement/attention, and drone interaction.

Dr. Andujar’s research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), SOFWERX/DEFENSEWERX, the Florida High Tech Corridor, and Intel. His work has been covered in more than 600 media news outlets worldwide including the New York Times, Associated Press, Discovery Channel, the Verge, Engadget, among others. He is a member of ACM, IEEE Computers, and the Brain-Computer Interface Society.

Dr. Andujar received his Ph.D. in Human-Centered Computing from the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL under the advisement of Dr. Juan Gilbert (Dr. G). During his Ph.D. studies, Dr. Andujar was recognized as a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, a GEM Fellow, a Generation's Google Scholar, and an Intel Scholar. He also co-founded the Brain-Drone Race and received $300,000 from a former CEO and VP of Intel. He holds a B.S. in Computer Science and a B.A. in Mathematical Sciences. He also conducted research at Intel.
