About Me

This is me.


That’s me.  I currently run a startup I founded with my friend and colleague Ulf Blanke, working with personal and private data.  I hold a Ph.D. (Dr.-Ing.) in Computer Engineering from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology for my dissertation on recognition of emergent behavior of groups of individuals using mobile sensing devices (the smartphones of the group members).  I am into everything from the Quantified Self movement, to context sensitive technology, activity recognition, real-time signal analysis using machine learning, artificial intelligence for embedded and mobile devices, calm technology, slow technology, cloud computing, big data and analytics, and much more!  I am not a “privacy” buff per se, but I am passionate about preserving digital rights of the individual.  Hence my startup TwoSense addresses the use of personal data towards user empowerment.
