Dr Thomas Bohné
Human-technology systems, virtual and augmented reality, smart exoskeletons, sensors and vision-based activity recognition, and human performance.
Thomas is founder and Head of the Cyber-Human Lab at the University of Cambridge. The lab focuses on how human abilities can be amplified with technologies to improve human performance in industrial contexts. The lab’s team works with a wide range of technology prototypes and emerging digital technologies, including virtual and augmented reality, smart exoskeletons, sensors and vision-based activity recognition. The lab’s team blends these technologies with human skills into cyber-human systems and uses an experimental approach to understand and optimise the performance of these systems.
Thomas holds a PhD from the University of Cambridge’s Department of Engineering, an MPhil from Cambridge’s Judge Business School, and an MLitt from the University of St Andrews. He has been a Visiting Fellow at Harvard University and has held positions at RWTH Aachen University and University of Auckland, as well as in several companies. He is currently co-founder, Senior Treasurer and Executive Committee member of the Cambridge University VR / AR Society; and Senior Treasurer and Executive Committee member of the Cambridge University Technology and Enterprise Club (CUTEC).
