Heiko Müller

Heiko Müller is a postdoctoral fellow at the Media Informatics and Multimedia Systems group at the University of Oldenburg. He earned his PhD on "Ambient Light Displays for Temporal Information" from the University of Oldenburg in 2018. Before returning to Oldenburg he spent 18 months in a postdoctoral position working on the EU-funded "DecoChrom" project at the Faculty of Arts and Design at the University of Lapland in Rovaniemi, Finland.

Heiko has co-authored more than 40 peer-reviewed publications at top international venues. His community service includes several chairing positions at international conferences like MobileHCI, Automotive User Interfaces and IEEE ICHI.

In his current position at the University of Oldenburg, Heiko is the coordinator for the DFG-funded Priority Programm 2199 "Scalable Interaction Paradigms for Pervasive Computing Environments".

Heiko's research interests are in ambient information systems as well as automotive and marine user interfaces.
