Congratulations Christian for receiving a Google CS Research Mentorship Program award for the 2019-2020 academic year. The award provides recipients with Google research scientist mentorship ranging from support in conducting and publishing research, career and advanced academic development, to traveling to Google headquarters and a premier CS research conference with other awardees.
Christian has worked for several years with Mike and Ann Eisenberg in the Craft Tech Lab. He shared that "my research interests lie in human augmentation, sensory extension, Transhumanism, biohacking, emergent technology, and educational technology. I believe that all these topics have a substantial impact on humans cognitively in the future." Christian is considering the ICS Cognitive Science Combined PhD Program for graduate school.
We look forward to hearing more about his work with Google in the Fall 2019 ICS Newsletter.
