About me

I am a third-year PhD student at the HCI Group of the University of Würzburg. With my PhD work centering on the research of individual, application, and system-related factors influencing body perception of embodied avatars in AR/VR, I am contributing to the research of systems complementing traditional body image therapy. In 2022, I received the Meta PhD Research Fellowship for “AR/VR Future Technologies”. My PhD thesis is advised by Prof. Marc Erich Latoschik and Prof. Carolin Wienrich.

Before I enrolled for my PhD, I finished degrees in Human-Computer-Systems (BSc) and Human-Computer Interaction (MSc) at the University of Würzburg. From 2016 to 2017, I was research intern at the Cognitive Engineering Research Group at the University of Queensland, Australia, supervised by Prof. Penelope Sanderson.
