I am a PhD student at CITEC (Cognitive Interaction Technology - Center of Excellence), Bielefeld University in Germany. I am member of the Applied Informatics and the Ambient Intelligence group at Bielefeld University.

My research interest includes
  • Cognitive Assistive Technology
  • Multi-modal perception and interaction in real-life scenarios
  • Computer vision
  • Machine learning
In my PhD project TAPeD, I work on the development of a system that assists persons with cognitive disabilities in the task of brushing their teeth. The system is called TEBRA (TEeth BRushing Assistance system). More information about the project and the system can be found in the research section.
