I have been a PhD student in the Media Informatics and Multimedia Systems Group from 2016 to 2019. Now, I am heading the Personal Pervasive Computing Group in the R&D Division ‘Society’ at OFFIS – Institute for Information Technology (Oldenburg, Germany). You can reach me via .

My research interest lies in Human-Computer Interaction, especially the role of personal technologies in everyday life. I design and develop hardware, software and user experiences that adapt to social and societal needs and challenges.

I completed my PhD on 'Designing Socially Acceptable Body-worn Cameras' under the supervision of Susanne Boll in 2019. My PhD thesis on “Designing Socially Acceptable Body-worn Cameras” was recognized with the Helene-Lange-Preis 2020 and the UGO Outstanding Dissertation Award 2021. I hold a M.Sc. (2013), and B.Sc. (2010) in Media Informatics from Ludwig-Maximilians Universität Munich (LMU). Prior to joining OFFIS, I have been a Postdoctoral Researcher with the HCI Group at Saarland University and at the University of Duisburg-Essen.

The most up-to-date list of my publications is on my Google Scholar profile. Feel free to check out my personal webpage.

My group at OFFIS is always looking for bright and motivated students to join us as student research assistants. You can check out current openings or reach out directly to me.

I also occasionally co-supervise Bachelor and Master theses in cooperation with the Media Informatics and Multimedia Systems Group. If you are interested in conducting user studies, prototyping wearable devices, working with e-textiles, or personal fabrication (or similar), reach out to me. I am happy to discuss your ideas or propose a thesis topic to you.
