PhD Candidate

University of Stuttgart


I am a PhD candidate and scientific employee at Stuttgart University's AC department, working under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Steffen Staab. My research focuses on human-computer interaction, particularly multimodal interaction combining eye tracking with touch or non-lexical voice input.

Currently, I am working on the EXIST-funded project Semanux, which aims to make the digital world more inclusive by enabling people with disabilities to control the computer via their individual capabilities.

I have published papers on novel methods of eye typing at ACM CHI and ACM ETRA. In addition, I tutor courses in Human-Computer Interaction, Information Retrieval, and Machine Learning at the University of Stuttgart and supervise student theses. Prior to pursuing my PhD, I gained seven years of industry experience working for companies such as Bliksund in Norway and Union Betriebs-GmbH in Bonn, where I contributed to various web-oriented IT projects, including a rules repository system for CDU and the personal homepage of Angela Merkel.
