About Me

Headshot of Heiko

I'm a professor at the Institute of Computing at the University of Campinas (Unicamp). I received a PhD in 2013 and a MSc degree in 2008, both in Computer Science and both from Unicamp. I hold a "Diplom" in "Wirtschaftsinformatik" (Business Informatics) from TU Darmstadt. My research interests are mainly in Human-Computer Interaction. I'm interested in how people use technology to interact with each other. At the moment, I'm mostly interested in the pragmatics of interaction, i.e. in how people express and understand intentions mediated by technology.
