In this paper, we present a novel approach including sinusoid models that use skeletal motion data from an RGB-D (Kinect) sensor and the Differential Evolution (DE) optimization algorithm to dynamically fit sinusoidal curves to derive frequency and depth parameters for cardiopulmonary resuscitation training.

In this paper, we propose the concept of comprehensive and practical receiver-oriented encryption (ROE) as a guiding principle for such data-intensive, research-oriented case management systems, and illustrate our concept with the example of the IT infrastructure of the project STROKE OWL.
Studies in health technology and informatics, 2019

In this paper, we present an online method for the unsupervised segmentation of skeletal motion capture data for the assessment of unfavorable or harmful postures in the context of musculoskeletal disorders.
Proceedings of HEALTHINF, 2018

In this paper, we present results from the VERA project regarding design, usability, and motivation for long-term usage of a mobile web app platform that encourages physical and mental activity.

Two weeks ago I started to commute on my bike from my home to work. I covered the almost 30km to and back with my old FOCUS Red Falls trekking bike (year 2008?), which had not been used for years. In my student days I was a kind of bicycle nerd, who tinkered a lot with his bike and so I felt itchy in my fingers to tinker with the bike again.


I came across a problem today that a dialog window appears (or better: hides) behind the main window in a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application. Consider the following C# code: var mainWindow = new MainWindow(); mainWindow.Show(); var dialog = new DialogWindow(); dialog.ShowDialog(); Window.ShowDialog() deactivates the message loop of the main window so that only the dialog box can be used. However, if you forget to set the owner of the dialog box, the dialog window behind the main window may disappear.


I’ve updated my personal website using the Academic theme for the website generator Hugo. Some things are unfinished but I think it looks quite good.




Evolutionary-optimized Human Posture Classification Models based on Motion Capture Data


Student theses

I have supervised some Bachelor and Master theses. Currently, the following theses are open and subject to discussions:
