About me

Industry Technology
Location Satteldorf, Germany
Introduction I am a professor at the University of Stuttgart. My central research interests are novel user interfaces and innovative applications enabled by ubiquitous computing. Before moving to Stuttgart I was a professor at the Univeristy of Duisburg-Essen, had a joined position between the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) and the University of Bonn. I studied computer science in Ulm and Manchester and afterwards worked as a researcher at the University of Karlsruhe and at Lancaster University. There I completed in 2003 my PhD thesis on the topic of "Ubiquitous Computing - Computing in Context". Before I became professor at the B-IT-Center I headed the DFG-funded "Embedded Interaction Research Group" at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich. My teaching and research interests are in media informatics and in particular in the areas of user interface engineering, pervasive computing and mobile interactive systems.
Interests mobile user interfaces, automotive user interfaces, in car man-machine interaction, sensor based user interfaces, context-awareness, interaction design for embedded systems, methods and tools for prototyping interactive systems, information visualisation, pervasive computing, technologies for supply chains and logistics, applications of sensor networks, location-aware systems and tracking, novel health applications, ubiquitous computing, pervasive computing, wearable computing, cooperative systems
