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.
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.
