// Interdisciplinary and Creative

Hi there! I am Sebastian, a researcher and developer based in Copenhagen, Denmark

I am a Professor of Media Technology in the Department of Architecture, Design, and Media Technology at Aalborg University in Copenhagen. I currently serve as Deputy Head of the Department and also head the Media Technology section in Copenhagen. 

My research focuses on novel interaction techniques in augmented reality, where I am interested in increasing the experience by considering more than just the visual sense. I develop sophisticated sensing and tracking technologies as well as the design and evaluation of such interaction techniques.  In all projects, I am involved in, I follow a human-centered approach, iteratively designing, developing and evaluating a prototype.
