I am a postdoctoral research associate in physical computing and interaction design at University College London, working at the Intel ICRI-Cities and UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC). I work with Professor Yvonne Rogers and dr. Nicolai Marquardt on projects related to multi-device environments, physical computing, and sensor-based systems. I receivd my PhD in Human-Computer Interaction at the Pervasive Interaction Technology Lab (PIT) at IT University of Copenhagen under supervision of Professor Jakob Bardram.
