This PhD project will explore in which way we can benefit from the richness of expression and fluid interaction styles of touch-based and tangible input devices, while providing the needed level of precise control. In particular, the PhD student will explore the combination of large displays with stationary and mobile touch input as well as dedicated tangible devices in the context of the visualization of fluid dynamics data.
