Stefan the friendly acedemic

My doctorate in Computer Science focused on assistive technology for persons with cognitive impairments - based on a socio-technical approach to Human-Computer Interaction. My Post Doc work was as a  senior researcher in the BIKA group at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FIT) in Sankt Augustin, Germany working on several European Commission Projects. From 2018 to 2016 I was a senior researcher  in San Sebastian Spain, at the Tecnalia Foundation. I currently focus on socio-technical systems supporting successful aging in place, with an emphasis on Elders and accessibility along with  pre-Alzheimer diminished cognitive abilities. Most recently, I am focusing on mobility aid use and abandonment and persuasive technologies in the context of sustainable and resilient consumer food purchasing and consumption.
