about me i am a computer scientist, interaction designer, and creative technologist. i hold various degrees in computer science, marketing & communication, and media design

currently i am research and teaching assistant at the Human-Computer Interaction Group at the University of Bamberg in the fields of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp). Previously, i worked for the Bauhaus-University in Weimar, Hewlett Packard, as well as various advertising agencies

i am currently involved in a number of projects in the fields of CSCW, HCI and ubiquitous computing at the Cooperative Media Lab focusing on mutual awareness, context-awareness in cooperative ubiquitous enviroments, novel user interfaces, and applied machine learning

my teaching activities span carrying out assignments for Ubiquitous Computing, HCI and CSCW as well as supervising student projects and theses for bachelors and masters

recent work





MTEatsplore
MTEatsplore, a multi- touch tabletop application designed to structure interaction and guide group discussion, and thus improve the decision quality when cooperatively selecting an eating opportunity in a group.
MagnetiCode
MagnetiCode, is a novel tagging mechanism repurposing magnetometer sensors in mobile phones. Identification tags are sent in form of a pulsed electromagnetic field which can be read by the phone's compass.
TUIOFX
TUIOFX is a novel toolkit for developing multi-touch, multi-user applications for interactive tabletops and surfaces with JavaFX. It leverages on JavaFX functionality for building rich, visual applications.
FabAR
FabAR allows the interactive fabrication of 3D printed objects, based on the mashup principle. Users can modify and combine 3D models based on gestural input and augmented reality.
Various Interaction Designs
These are a few examples of the various interaction designs from recent work, reaching from paper-prototypes, over scenarios and storyboards, to GUI designs and gesture alphabets.
