Peter Kiefer is a senior researcher at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, leading the GeoGazeLab at the Chair of Geoinformation Engineering. His eye tracking research is focused on gaze-based interaction with geo information and with real urban environments. He is specifically interested in new gaze-based assistive technologies that can help to improve the interaction with mobile geo-spatial services.

yanxiazhangYanxia Zhang is a research associate and PhD student in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University, United Kingdom. Her research interests include gaze-assisted interface for everyday computing, eye tracking for health monitoring, and vision-based interactive systems.
