I was part of organizing the 9th International UBI PhD Summer School 2018 (UBISS 2018) in Oulu, Finland, June 4-9, 2018.
I was running Workshop B on Wearable and Mobile Health and Behaviour Tracking together with Denzil Ferreira. This was a super nice experience and I enjoyed spending a week diving into technical details on sensing frameworks for mobile sensing, especially the AWARE Framework done by Denzil (while I did tell him that I did the original AWARE Architecture back in 2004 😉 ). Also, getting to know Timo Ojala (or “Timppa” ??) was really a pleasure.
I was visting my old friend and phd student Steven Houben the other day who invited me to connect up with the Ubicomp crew at Lancaster University — and in particular to meet Sumi Helal, who is now appointed Chair in Digital Health.
While being there, I gave a talk. The title, abstract, and slides are available here.
Title: Personal Health Technology — Opportunities and Examples
Abstract: In this talk I will provide an overview of the research done at the Copenhagen Center for Health Technology (CACHET). I will provide the background of this research, define what we mean by personal health technology and how this related to other types of health technology, and come with concrete examples from our different research projects. In particular, I will use my own research into the use of smartphones in the monitoring and treatment of mental health, as an example.
I finally managed to move content from my old ITU homepage to this new WordPress-based homepage. I’m not sure I will add a lot of blogs or news here – after all, I don’t think people will read it anyway. But it may work as place for putting information on my research, in particular the projects that I am – and have been – involved in, as well as the technology I’ve been part of designing, implementing, and evaluating over the years. This is of course my version of the research done; on these pages I will focus on my work and contribution within the overall projects.
