I joined the Interactive Media Lab as a research associate / Ph.D. student in February 2016 and was since then focusing on bringing novel interaction techniques to information visualizations on modern devices. Specifically, my research interest was on forming so-called device ecologies with multiple co-located devices and to facilitate data analysis with them. This research formed my PhD thesis, which I successfully defended on July 7, 2021.

Over the years, I was involved in multiple projects, for example, investigating visualization of business data (cooperation with SAP), facilitating visual data analysis of multivariate graphs (GEMS 2.0), or visualizing and explicating formal method concepts (CPEC).
