I am Jan-Kristian Markiewicz and I’m a Program Manager working on the Core Experience team. I've worked on natural input methods since I started on the Tablet PC team 5 years ago. For Windows 8, I’ve been working on defining the touch, mouse, and keyboard interaction model used by the shell and our applications. I’m also working on making touch scrolling performant, and building semantic zoom for Start and All Programs. I love to spend my free time outdoors: hiking, backpacking, rock climbing and mountaineering.
