This year I was again very lucky to attend Ubicomp’19 and present my first-author paper on Measuring the Effects of Stress on Mobile Interaction in London, UK.

The conference was great as usual, I got a chance to meet with my old friends and met new people as well! The reception was held at the Natural History Museum where the Steering Committee held Ubicomp’s annual award ceremony.

It was a great honour for me to be the winner of Gaetano Borriello Outstanding Student Award this year for my research contributions and service in the field of ubiquitous and pervasive computing. I am now even more inspired to continue doing research and keep the good work up. I am very honoured to win such a prestigious award and thankful for the opportunity to do ubicomp research.

That’s not all the good news. We have also won the Best Paper Award for the paper that I co-authored - Assisted Medication Management in Elderly Care Using Miniaturised Near-Infrared Spectroscopy. This was a great success overall to our lab which I am greatful and lucky to be a part of.

I am now inspired to do more research and looking forward to experience what next unfolds in my life :)
