I am a development engineer at Porsche , working on innovation projects in electronic and electrical engineering. In my research, I focus on embedded sensing systems for Ubiquitous Computing and Human-Computer Interaction. In particular, I am interested in new ways of perceiving the environment with unobtrusive sensing modalities. Previously, I was a researcher in the Sensors & Devices Group at Microsoft Research Cambridge and a Morgan Fellow at Downing College . I obtained my PhD from TU Darmstadt, working at Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD .
