a bit about me
After finishing my Ph.D at the ETH Zurich
Wearable Computing Lab
I moved to Lancaster University's Computing Department
under the guidance of Hans Gellersen.
A year into my time at Lancaster, I was awarded an EU
Marie-Curie Fellowship to develop my work on
Multi-Modal Activity Recognition for Interactive Environments (or 'MARIE').
My research then delved into
Eye-Based Activity Recognition ('EAR')
in collaboration with Andreas Bulling
(for details on some of this work, have a look at my old research page.)
In the Summer of 2010,
having worked continuously in computing related topics since the age of 17,
I took an extended Sabbatical to move to London and train as an actor. My recent research, with support from DFKI, is on wearable sensing of group activities with a focus on Wearables in the performing arts.
I am currently co-chair of the UbiComp/ISWC '16 Workshops(September 12-16, Heidelberg, Germany)
