Professional Career

After finishing my computer science Diplom at the FAU Erlangen I started working at the research group Digital Media in Bremen. In the beginning I worked the combination of spatial data from lidar devices and panoramic images.

Now the focus of my scientific work lies on researching better ways for mobile text entry, but I also dabble in other field of mobile HCI.

Mobile text entry

Mobile devices such as smartphones or tables are used everywhere. But they do not only have advantages (portability, ease of use, long battery life), but also severe disadvantages. Especially problematic is text entry, which is almost exclusively done by on-screen keyboards. In the project "HoverZoom Keyboard" I work on improving such keyboards.
