I am an Associate Professor in the HCC Group at the University of Copenhagen. My research focuses on novel interaction techniques around the display's boundaries. I am particularly interested in considering the surrounding of displays as new interaction canvas instead of only looking at the display itself. My research includes both the development of sophisticated sensing and tracking technologies as well as the design and evaluation of such interaction techniques. Before coming to Copenhagen, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Interactions Lab at the University of Calgary working with Dr. Saul Greenberg and Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale.
I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Munich, Germany. During my studies at the University of Munich, I was a visiting researcher at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA in 2005 (working with Gregory Abowd, Gillian Hayes, and Julie Kientz), in the Media Team at the University of Oulu, Finland in 2007 (working with Jukka Riekki and Timo Ojala), and in the Human Computer Interaction Lab, Hasso-Plattner-Institute, Berlin in 2009 (working with Patrick Baudisch and Sean Gustafson).
