Introduction from Matthew Todd Farrell

I am not sure yet what to post, as there is no precedent yet but I will do my best. First off, it is a wonderful thing to be able to spend time working and researching in Switzerland. I am here at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne conducting research in sensor networks at the Media and Design Laboratory directed by Professor Jeffrey Huang. There is a lot of excitement and willingness to try out new ideas in this lab. I will be giving some more updates on what is happening around the lab in the future.

Through August 2007 I will be developing applications of sensor networks for architecture. For example, developing a distributed interactive ceiling and wall. My research also covers areas of Information Visualization, Data Mining, and Design.

In the fall I will be returning to my home university at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where I am working on my MSc/PhD in Computer Science at the MIT Media Lab.

Forgive how brief this post is. I have been here for over a month already and much has happened. I look forward to finding out more about what other research is happening in Switzerland with other summer research students. Please feel free to contact me at if you have any mutual interests, want to meet, or find out where to get good ice cream ( the answer is Movenpick ).
