Kristof van Laerhoven is Professor at Technical University of Darmstadt. He studied Latin-Sciences at College Essen (high school),he got 'Kandidaat' Computer Science degree at the University of Limburg (LUC) in 1997 and his 'Licentiaat' (M.Sc.) Computer Science degree at the University of Brussels (VUB) in 1999.
In Brussels, his main interests started to shift towards robotics and neural networks and he got plenty of that doing projects at Luc Steels' VUB AI lab, with Bernard Manderick supervising my Master's thesis "Adaptive Context Awareness".
After an internship at Starlab Research he stayed to work for two more years to do research with companies such as Nokia, Philips, and Epson, and working with/for Walter Van de Velde.
Hans Gellersen took him into the Embedded Interactive Systems group at the University of Lancaster in the United Kingdom, where he finished a PhD thesis in 2005 entitled "Embedded Perception".
In April 2006, he moved to the Technische Universit├Ąt Darmstadt in Germany for a postdoc position with Bernt Schiele's Multimodal Interactive Systems group.
In summer 2009, he was granted an Emmy Noether Research Group by the German Research Foundation (DFG), on the theme of Long-Term Activity Recognition with Wearable Sensors, which started in 2010.
