Dipl.-Inf. Sascha Meudt

Nach meinem Abitur 2001 an der Robert-Bosch-Schule Ulm als bester Absolvent im LF Technik habe ich zunächst bis 2003 Elektrotechnik mit anschließendem Wechsel in das Fach Informatik studiert. Das Informatik Studium habe ich 2011 mit der Diplomarbeit „Audio-visuelle Informationsfusion zur Identifikation von Personen bei der Mensch-Computer-Interaktion“ abgeschlossen. Studienbegleitend war ich selbständig im Bereich EDV Kursleitung, EDV Referent und Dienstleistung so wie Veranstaltungstechnik tätig. Seit Sommer 2011 bin ich am Institut für Neuroinformatik als wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter angestellt. Hier beschäftige ich mich mit der multimodalen Emotions- und Dispositionserkennung in der Mensch-Computer-Interaktion.
