I am a part-time lecturer in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University and full-time assistant professor at the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany). This is my personal home page describing my research interests, listing my publications, showing the projects in which I participate(d) and providing information about my teaching.
My research focuses on mobile HCI, pervasive computing, human-computer interaction and mobile computing. In the last years I worked primarily on mobile interactions in pervasive user interfaces such as interactive horizontal and vertical surfaces, personal projectors and floor displays.
I joined the University of Duisburg-Essen in June 2010 and started there a Mobile HCI research group which is largely funded by the Emmy Noether - Programme. I joined the Lancaster University in 2006. Prior to coming to Lancaster, I worked between February 2004 and September 2006 as a research associate and PhD student in the Embedded Interaction (former personal homepage) and the Media Informatics Group (former personal homepage) at the University of Munich. I received my doctorate (Dr. rer. nat.) at the University of Munich in 2007. Between September 2002 and January 2004 I worked as a research associate in the Heinz-Nixdorf Endowed Chair for Multimedia Technology (former personal homepage) at the Technical University of Dresden. Before that, I completed my MSc (German: Diplom) in Computer Science at the Technical University of Dresden.
