Hey, I am André

I am a PhD student at the University of Zurich in Switzerland and Data Scientist at MIT Coaching. My research interests lie in developers’ productivity and work, and in creating tools that foster productivity at work by using persuasive technologies such as self-monitoring and goal-setting.

In my research, I’ve built a tool, PersonalAnalytics, that increases developers’ awareness about work and productivity and helps them to come up with productive behavior changes. In collaboration with ABB, we’ve built the FlowLight, a traffic-light like system that successfully reduces interruptions at the workplace that happen at inopportune moments.

Previously, I’ve  interned with Microsoft Research (Redmond, US) twice and am currently working at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) as a visiting researcher. During my studies, I’ve worked at MIT Cloud Innovation for ~9.5 years. There, I’ve worked on amazing projects, such as TouchMountain (Augmented Reality app to recognize peaks worldwide) and Picturex (a secure and private B2C and B2B photo exchange service), and served the Board of Directors for ~2.5 years.
