Bio

Sven Mayer is a Ph.D. student at the University of Stuttgart. He is a member of the Interaction-Lab.io under the supervision of Niels Henze. Until September 2017, the group was co-located with the human-computer interaction group – hcilab.org. He is in the Cluster of Excellence for Simulation Technology (SimTech) funded by the German research foundation (DFG). His research is about modeling of human behavior patterns for interactive systems. He spent the summer of 2015 at the Inference, Dynamics, and Interaction (IDI) group under the supervision of Roderick Murray-Smith at the University of Glasgow (UK). Moreover, he worked as a guest researcher for the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen under the supervision of Lewis Chuang. Prior to joining the group in Stuttgart, he received his Dipl.-Inf. at the University of Stuttgart.
