PEOPLE / Dr. Paul Strohmeier
I currently lead the Sensorimotor Interaction Group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics.
Before that I was a a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the HCI group of Saarland University. I received my Phd Degree in Computer Science from University of Copenhagen in Denmark and MSc degree in Computer Science from the Queen’s University in Canada. I am interested in human perception and computer sensing. I apply methods from psychophysics to deepen our understanding of human perception, especially in relation to action. I also investigate the hardware design and implementation of novel sensors to provide digital systems improved access to the physical world. I believe that understanding the opportunities and constraints of human perception and computer sensing is the foundation for creating truly hybrid human/computer systems.
