My name is Christian Weichel and I'm a PhD student at Lancaster University, United Kindom.

I am supervised by Prof. Hans Gellersen and am interested in personal fabrication, human computer interaction and ubiquitous computing. Being a maker at heart, I tend to create/design/build things and sometimes blog about them.

Should you want to know more, please have a look at my CV.


This is the short list of my publications.
