My research focuses on making interfaces for computing systems more physical. The appropriation of physical tools has been part of human evolution. Being an important and ubiquitous tool of our time, I want to adapt the human-computer interface to best fit our physical skills.
Spatial audio can be used to convey directional information along with sound sources and wearable or textile interfaces make computers ubiquitous and accessible. Prototyping these interfaces with state-of-the-art machinery sometimes entails work in personal and digital fabrication.
Before, I worked at the Media Computing Group at RWTH Aachen University. I was a guest lecturer for iOS programming at GUtech in Oman in 2011 and 2013.
I received both my doctoral degree in natural sciences (2016) and my diploma in computer science (2008) from RWTH Aachen University, Germany.
