Dr Kanjo was first to coin the phrase 'Mobile Sensing' and wrote some of the earliest papers on the subject (GeoMobSens and Mobsens). She also built the first noise monitoring system using the phone-based microphone (NoiseSpy). Her current work on Mobile Affective Sensing and Urban City Mood complements her work on environmental monitoring in order to make sense of a place (NeuroPlace, and mFeel).
Also, her recent work (NotiMind) on modeling mobile phone interaction patterns and its link to mental health, is a new step towards using quantitative and sensor data to understand behaviour.
Dr Kanjo is the general chair of the S-cube conference, 5th International Conference on Sensor Systems and Software, October 5–7, 2014 - Coventry, Great BritainDr Kanjo is a member of the following:
