I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Digital Media Lab of the Center for Computing and Communication Technologies (TZI) at the University of Bremen. I do research in the fields of Navigation, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Entertainment Computing (EC) and I am especially interested in Mobile and Wearable Computing.

In 2003 I started studying Computer Science at the University of Bremen where I completed my 'Diplom' degree in 2009. From 2009 until 2012 I was a doctoral fellow in the graduate school Advances in Digital Media funded by the Klaus Tschira Foundation (KTS). Since 2013 I am working as a research associate and received my PhD in 2015.

My doctoral thesis, titled Navigation in the Real World and in Virtual Worlds, aimed at taking advantage of modern input technology to design natural and intuitive interaction concepts for navigation in the real world and navigation in virtual worlds. It was supervised by Prof. Dr. Rainer Malaka from the University of Bremen and Prof. Dr. Johannes Schöning from Hasselt University.

For details on my work have a look at my at my website.
