Hi, I'm Sarah. I recently finished my PhD in Human-Computer Interaction with Elaine May Huang at ZPAC (Zurich People and Computing Lab), University of Zurich in Switzerland.

For my thesis I explored how people currently interact with building automation in their homes and how this interaction can be improved. I did so by taking into account inhabitants' routines as well as exploring the options offered by novel technologies.
