About me

I am postdoctoral researcher and head of the HCI group at Telecooperation Lab led by Prof. Max Mühlhäuser. My research investigates human-computer interfaces at the intersection of augmented- and virtual reality, haptic tangible feedback, and digital fabrication. I have a background in computer science, psychology, and visual computing and undertook my PhD within the Telecooperation Lab exploring 3D-printed interfaces.
