About me…

I am a professor in computer science at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (DTU Compute). I am also an adjunct professor in public health at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen (KU SUND). And I am the director of the Copenhagen Center for Health Technology (CACHET).

My research interests include Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp), Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Mobile and Embedded Sensing, and Software Architecture. Currently, the main application areas of this research is within healthcare, ranging from interactive displays for clinical logistics to personal health technology for mental health. Checkout my Google scholar page for a list of publications, and see my list of projects and technologies for details of what I’ve been doing over the years.

Based on the research done in the MONARCA project, I co-founded Monsenso, which provides mHealth technology for mental disorders. Based on the research done in the AWARE project, I co-founded Cetrea developing pervasive computing technology for hospitals, which was acquired by the Geting Group in 2014. I also helped start up CLC Bio developing bioinformatics software, which was acquired by Qiagen in 2013.

I am a senior member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and member of the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences (ATV). I am an associate editor on the ACM Proceedings on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies (PACM IMWUT) and the Journal of Human–Computer Interaction. I have served on numerous program and organizing committees for both ACM and IEEE conferences.

In 2010 I hosted and co-organized the ACM Ubicomp Conference in Copenhagen. In 2012 I was awarded the Informatics Europe Curriculum Award for the ‘Pervasive Computing Curriculum’ that I’ve been developing and teaching both at the University of Aarhus and at the IT University of Copenhagen.
