About Julian

I'm a fifth year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University - Human Computer Interaction Institute, where I'm advised by Anind Dey and Mayank Goel. I work at the intersection of Human-computer Interaction, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Health. I create systems and methods with the goal of understanding human behavior and improving people's wellbeing. Towards this goal, I have worked in projects on Stress, Activity Recognition and interruptibility detection. I'm currently focused on the personalization of health interventions using a combination of AI, wearables and a smartphone.I have also worked on novel input interaction techniques like keyboard surface interaction and gestures detection using a smartwatch.


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.
