Portrait of Dan Morris

Dan Morris

Principal Researcher and Deliverer of Rock


I’m a Principal Researcher in the Microsoft Medical Devices Group.

My interests include:

Sensors and machine learning for health and fitness
Computer support for music and creativity
Sensors and machine learning for input systems
Making medical records more intuitive to patients

Before coming to Microsoft, my research focused on:

Haptics and physical simulation for medical applications
Neural prosthetics and brain-computer interfaces

And I was part of the team that made Songsmith, which lets musical novices get a taste of songwriting, just by singing, and provides songwriters with an “intelligent scratchpad”. It’s totally sweet. Try it.

My personal page lives here.  I also blog about nerdy chord theory stuff here.
