INIT Lab PhD student Alex Shaw defends his dissertation!

The INIT lab is proud to share that PhD student Alex Shaw defended his dissertation work “Automatic Recognition of Children’s Touchscreen Stroke Gestures” earlier today! Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, we held the defense virtually. Alex’s committee members were myself (chair), Dr. Jaime Ruiz, Dr. Eakta Jain, Dr. Damon Woodard, and Dr. Pavel Antonenko (UF College of Education). Pending final comments from one committee member who will have to catch up via video due to scheduling challenges, we’d like to say congratulations, Dr. Shaw 😀

Here are two screenshots I took of the defense to document the occasion:
