Patrick O'Keefe, incoming graduate student in the Electrical Engineering:Systems program, received a
prestigious NSF Graduate Research
Fellowship for his research in human computer interaction. O'Keefe plans
to work with Prof. George Essl.
When asked about his research, O'Keefe responded, "I aim to change the way we
interact with technology. The fusion of multiple sensors, modalities, and

for new, rich experiences and interfaces. I am confident we can do better
than the ubiquitous keyboard and mouse paradigm, and I intend to find out
The National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program
(GRFP) recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in
NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines
who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees in the U.S.
