About Julian

I'm a Forth year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University - Human Computer Interaction Institute, where I'm advised by Anind Dey. I work at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Ubiquitous computing and Psychology creating methods with the goal of understanding human behavior and improving people's wellbeing. Towards this goal, I have worked in projects on Stress and Activity Recognition. I'm also interested in what we can learn about people's behavior from the way they interact with their phones. I have also worked on novel input interaction techniques.


Im very excited about the opportunities to use ubiquituous computing for understanding and improving people lives. The next are different research projects I have worked on towards that purpose.
