Dr. Edward Ho completed his PhD at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich (ETH Zürich), Switzerland is part of the Auto-ID Labs ETH Zürich / University of St. Gallen.

Edward's background in sensors, algorithms and feedback developed his research interest in using ubiquitous computing and concepts from social psychology to influence consumer behavior. Prior to his doctoral studies, Edward has worked for several years in numerous engineering positions including as a trainee at Alstom Inspection Robotics (a start-up specializing in automated mechanical inspection) in Switzerland, as a field engineer in Schlumberger (an oilfield services provider) in Canada, and as a researcher at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany.

He obtained his MSc in robotics (MSc ETH Robotics, Systems and Controls) at ETH Zürich. His thesis focused on algorithms for robot-assisted rehabilitation of injured patients. His BSc in engineering at the University of Waterloo, Canada focused on mechatronics - the intersection of sensors and algorithms.


For his research, he is working with the European Union FP7 lighthouse project Internet of Things Architecture (on business applications of the internet of things), startups Cosibon AG (on in-store consumer influence) and GS1.
