Denys J.C. Matthies
Designer (B.A.) | Engineer (M.Sc.) | Researcher (Dr.-Ing.)
Denys J.C. Matthies was born on the 29th of January 1987 in Schwerin, Germany. He received his academic degrees in Germany, which are: B.A. Interface Design at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam (09/2008-03/2012), M.Sc. Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Munich (04/2012-03/2014), and Dr.-Ing. in Computer Science at the University of Rostock (08/2014-02/2018). He started his Postdoc at the Bioengineering Institute at the University of Auckland (03/2018). During his academic career, he worked at several other research institutes, such as at the Telekom Innovation Laboratories in Berlin (09/2011-02/2012), at the NUS HCI Lab in Singapore
(10/2013-03/2014), and at the Fraunhofer IGD Rostock in Germany (08/2014-09/2017). Since 2011, Denys conducts and publishes research in the domain of Human-Computer Interaction. His research interest is in augmenting humans with wearable technology. While his previous research was focused on exploring alternative interaction modalities that enable interaction to be less attention drawing, he has more recently conducted research in the medical domain, in order to improve human's everyday life. Denys serves as a reviewer for many conferences and journals, such as: CHI, MobileHCI, TEI, INTERACT, WHC, EJBI, and iWOAR.
