Profile Picture

I am a Computer Scientist and Associate Professor at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) where I am part of the Department of Sustainable Design Engineering in the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering.

I am also an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the School of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne where I work with the Human-Computer Interaction Group and lead the Berlin-Melbourne University Alliance for Digital Technologies to Measure and Promote Sustainable Health, a joint PhD graduate program between the Berlin Universities and the University of Melbourne.

I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Stuttgart, where I explored the notion of cognition-aware systems, i.e., systems that help people process information more effectively, boost memory, and generally augment human cognition.

During my post-doctoral period, I was a Project Assistant Professor at Osaka Prefecture University in Japan and a visiting post-doc at the MIT Media Lab. In between my academic career, I worked in Industry writing code for Yahoo! and TinyCo.

My general research interests include:

  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Intelligent Interactive Systems
  • Ubiquitous and Mobile Computing
  • Cognitive Computing
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality

I am always looking for PhD students in the areas of Ubiquitous Computing and Human-Computer Interaction. Please do reach out!
