Research Projects

PERCs: Persistently Trackable Tangibles on Capacitive Multi-Touch Displays: PERCs use the touch probing signal from capacitive touch screens to determine whether the tangibles are on- or off-screen. This allows robust capacitive tangible widgets regardless of being touched. (read more)

Paper and Demo at UIST 2015 and Demo at ITS 2015



Master's Thesis

Supervisor: Christian Corsten

My Master's Thesis: HaptiCase: Tactile Cues on the Back of Devices for Eyes-free Absolute Indirect Tapping Tasks focused on a novel interaction technique that added tactile landmarks to the back of mobile devices, to enable eyes-free interaction.




Bachelor's Thesis

Supervisor: Moritz Wittenhagen

In my Bachelor's Thesis: Folio Augmenting Books on Interactive Tabletops I implemented a software for large scale multi touch tables, that added digital annotations for real world books on the device.

Previous Projects


I was part of the team for the Interactive Assembly Project in 2012/13.
We developed a marker and gesture supported assembly program which allowed users to assemble the FabScan 3D Laser Scanner without prior knowledge of the system.
