Personal site www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~sstein/

Sebastian is Research Associate in the Inference, Dynamics and Interaction Research Group working on the EU funded MoreGrasp project led by Prof. Roderick Murray-Smith.

Biography

Sebastian received his German Diplom (MSc. equivalent) in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Dortmund in 2010, and for his work on recognitising manipulation actions and methods for fusing data from video and embedded accelerometers, he was awarded his PhD in Computing from the University of Dundee in 2014. He continued his research as postdoctoral research assistant in Dundee before joining the University of Glasgow as Research Associate in 2016. He is currently working on the EU funded MoreGrasp project led by Prof. Roderick Murray-Smith.

His interests are in intelligent interactive systems, spanning areas of HCI, ubiquitous computing, action recognition, computer vision and machine learning. 

In 2013, he had the honour to be selected for the 1st Heidelberg Laureate Forum, an annual meeting of young researchers with Abel Prize, Fields Medal and Turing Award laureates. In 2014, he was selected as finalist for the EPSRC UK ICT Pioneers competition in the category "Technology Everywhere". In 2015, he was co-organiser of the SICSA Research Challenge "Enabling Environments: Identifying Health Promoting Elements in Care Homes".
