Bibliography

Thomas Kubitza is a researcher and PhD candidate in the Human Computer Interaction Group lead by Albrecht Schmidt at the University of Stuttgart in Germany. His professional interests lie in the area of Human Computer Interaction and Ubiquitous Computing. Specifically he is interested in Smart Environments, their creation and programming. Many of his projects involve the creation of advanced hardware and software prototypes. Within the meSch FP7 EU project Thomas is responsible for the development of a software and hardware platform that allows designers and curators to easily create interactive installations. In 2014 he had the pleasure to pursue a 3 month internship at Microsoft Research Cambridge where he was part of the Sensors and Devices Group lead by Steve Hodges. Thomas holds a Master in Computer Science from the University of Duisburg-Essen. As a student researcher he was working in the FP7 EU project PDNET and he completed his master thesis at the InfoLab21 at the University of Lancaster, UK (Title: Engineering a Privacy Preserving Architecture for Mobile Interaction with Future Pervasive Public Displays Networks, supervised by Nigel Davies). In 2011 Thomas has worked for 4 month at the University of Oulu, Finland where he has lead the development of the Digifieds project – a platform for digital classifieds deployed in the city wide public display network. In parallel to his studies Thomas has gained many years of commercial experience as freelance software engineer for multiple German companies. Feel free to have a look around.
