As a postdoctoral researcher, Dey is working on the human factors of vehicle automation. His research interests lie in the fields of ubiquitous computing, multimodal interaction, natural user interfaces, and specifically, automotive user interfaces. He conducts design-driven research by developing and evaluating concepts and prototypes, and contributing to the domains of automated driving and traffic safety. 


Debargha (Dave) Dey obtained his master's degree in Computer Science at Vanderbilt University in the United States, and worked as a Software Engineer before gradually transitioning into the fields of User Experience, User-Centred Design, Human-Computer Interaction, and Human Factors, and returning to academia. He earned his PDEng (Professional Doctorate in Engineering) degree in User-System Interaction from the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2017. As a part of the i-Cave project, his PhD research focused on understanding the nature of the interaction between vehicles and other road users in the present scenario of human-driven vehicles of today, and investigating how these interactions can be facilitated or augmented for autonomous vehicles of tomorrow. He received a PhD cum laude from the department of Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of technology in 2020.
