My name is Denzil Ferreira and I’m passionate about mobile technology and how it can help us in our daily lives. I’m curious by nature. Since I can remember, I’ve always explored and pondered how things work. The methods have changed, but the need to research and discover have grew as I gain experience. Computer Science, Software Engineering and Human-Computer Interaction have opened my eyes to how much I still have to learn. Knowledge is what drives me, asking questions is what feeds my curious mind.
I’m currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Ubiquitous and Mobile Computing at University of Oulu, Finland. My thesis work is on AWARE, a mobile context and instrumentation middleware for understanding human behaviour. You can read more about it here: http://www.awareframework.com
I’m a member of MediaTeam Oulu research group at the Department of Computer Science in University of Oulu, where we instrument the city of Oulu (Top-7 most intelligent cities in Europe!). I’m also a member of UbicompLab research group at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. Check the Research area for the latest research I’m envolved with.
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to say hi!
