Available BSc and MSc Thesis Projects

  • Pervasive Privacy by Design
    Discussions of how to incorporate and implement privacy protection in pervasive/ubiquitous systems are becoming increasingly frequent in research literature, but for developers of these systems, it is difficult to find which methods have been tried and found to be effective given a certain number of design constraints. The goal of this project will be to design and develop a tool, a sort of privacy taxonomy, that can help researchers pinpoint relevant methods more effectively. More...

  • Explaining and Encouraging Shifting as a Way to Reduce One’s Carbon Footprint
    The aim of the this project will be to use the User Centered Design approach, combined with mental models, to design and implement a number of prototype mobile apps that will help users a) understand the notion and effects of shift rather than reduction, and b) will help users figure out when certain activities can be carried out to reduce the carbon emissions that they generate.
