Today, we welcome our new doctoral student George Boateng from Dartmouth at our center. In his thesis he will investigate multi-modal emotion recognition with the help of mobile sensing approaches in the context of chronic disease management in couples as part of the SNF project Mobile Couple Support. Here, George will design and evaluate a new module for the open source behavioral intervention platform MobileCoach (www.mobile-coach.eu) that then allows emotion detection in various health interventions beyond this particular SNF project.

We are happy to welcome Grace Xiao at our center as a visiting student for the next couple of weeks. She is currently finishing her undergraduate degree at Harvard, studying neurobiology and economics. At our center, she will do her summer research project with a focus on a MobileCoach-based digital health literacy intervention for children with asthma.
