Edison Thomaz





I am a Research Assistant Professor in the ECE department at The University of Texas at Austin, with an appointment in the School of Information. I am a member of DICE and WNCG at ECE and the Intelligent Systems Group at the iSchool. My research is in Computational Activiomics and focuses on systems and computational methods for sensing, recognizing and modeling the entire span of people's everyday activities and context, from simple gestures to complex life patterns. I am particularly interested in leveraging models of human behaviors to characterize and predict human health and disease.

I am currently looking for graduate students to join my new research group, which is exploring a variety of technical challenges at the intersection of wearable+ubiquitous computing, mobile health, human-computer intelligence and activity recognition. If you are currently a UT student, contact me by email; otherwise please consider applying to our graduate program.
