About me

I am a technologist and special investigator for creativity, fun and innovation. I received my Bachelor and Master of Engineering degrees in Media Technology/Media and Imaging Technology from the TH Köln. During my studies I worked on large scale 3D user interaction and immersive binaural audio simulation for VR, as well as on the real-time animation of avatars and the extraction of nonverbal parameters from the human face. Following my master degree I worked on interdisciplinary projects in the areas of mixed reality and nonverbal behavior analyses at the Department of Media Psychology of the University of Cologne.

I joined the HCI Group in October 2016 to pursue my PhD on intrapersonal, interpersonal and augmented interactions in VR. I teach in the courses of the Human-Computer Systems, the Human-Computer Interaction, as well as the Games Engineering program.


My research themes are centered around media technologies that transform perception, communication and society:
