I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Telecooperation Lab at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Oldenburg while working at the Media Informatics and Multimedia Systems group with Susanne Boll. During my Ph.D. time, I visited the Multimodal Interaction Group at the University of Glasgow (UK), where I worked with Stephen Brewster on assistance systems for cycling children in cities with missing cycling infrastructure.
My research focuses on assisting technology in urban environments. I design, construct, and evaluate multimodal and mixed reality interfaces for vulnerable road users. In particular, I investigate how to make evaluation environments for micro-mobility safe and realistic and what future micro-mobility, e.g., self-driving bicycles, can look like. Additionally, I focus on how adult and child cyclists interact with assistance systems designed for collision prevention, navigation, and traffic behavior recommendations. Previously, I investigated ambient light displays for car navigation, tangible awareness systems for work colleagues, and educational systems for children.
