Christian Poellabauer, a professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Notre Dame and an expert in mobile and wearable technologies, has been appointed founding director of the University’s new Applied Analytics and Emerging Technology Lab (AeTL).
Part of the Lucy Family Institute for Data and Society, at which Poellabauer is also now appointed as an associate director, the lab is funded by a $5 million grant from the Labs for Industry Futures and Transformation (LIFT) Network, a regional consortium established in 2019 with funding from the Lilly Endowment.
The new lab will serve as a regional nexus between technology companies and businesses seeking to apply advanced technologies to solve problems in areas such as manufacturing, cybersecurity and education. It will validate proof-of-concept business applications while also inspiring academic research in related areas. The lab will work closely with iNDustry Labs at Notre Dame, an anchor of the LIFT Network and the University’s platform for collaboration with local industry.
Poellabauer’s research focuses on the use of mobile, ubiquitous and wearable systems and devices for a variety of interdisciplinary challenges, including those found in health care, conservation and transportation. He is also affiliated with Notre Dame’s Center for Civic Innovation, Institute for Precision Health and Pulte Institute for Global Development.
