Ubiquitous Computing Ubicomp'2001

I have started in October 2007 a new group on pervasive computing and user interface engineering at the University of Duisburg-Essen.

Since Mai 2003 I am with the Media Informatics Group at the University of Munich (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, LMU). - please visit my site there!

From 8/2001 to 4/2003 I was working as a research associate at Lancaster University in the UK.

In 1995/1996 I did an MSc in computing at the Manchester Metropolitan University in the Department of Computing. Studying in Manchester is really great - I enjoyed my stay very much. My master thesis was on modual neural networks.

Back in Germany I finished my course in informatics at the University of Ulm in the department of Computer Science. I obtained my diploma degree ("Diplom") in 1997.

At the same time I was working as a student research assistant in the Department of Distributed Systems.

I am now a research assistant at the Telecooperation Office (TecO) at the University of Karlsruhe.

My central research interests are context awareness, situated interaction, and ubiquitous computing. Currently I am involved in organizing a workshop on situated interaction in ubiquitous computing at the CHI2000 Conference.

Teco Responsibilities
I am involved in the European Project TEA (Technology for Enabling Awareness #26900). In this project we are investigating the recognition of contexts from low level sensor information. I am especially interested how this information can be used to improve interaction with ultra-mobile devices. Results have been published at HUC99, feel free to have a look at the paper Advanced Interaction in Context (PDF, 343KB), or check out the Slides from the talk.

Together with SAP-CEC we are investigating how WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) technology can be used to develop new applications to enable truly ubiquitous access to information. Please have a look at our WAP-pages - wap.teco.edu (you should use a WAP-phone or a simulator).
