On May 14, Joonas Westlin successfully defended his MSc thesis “Middleware system for facilitating context-aware application development on smartphones”, which is essentially an account of research and development work done on the ManySense middleware. The defense committee consisted of Prof. Teemu Laine (Ajou University), Prof. Seok-Won Lee (Ajou University), and Prof. Adil Khan (Innopolis University, Russia). Joonas will be the first student to graduate from UbiLife lab. His contribution to UbiLife’s research with Calory Battle and ManySense has been indispensible. Congratulations for a job well done, and best wishes for the future!
