I'm a research assistant at the Media Computing Group.
I take a look at how Importance can be used to improve the interaction with computers. Projects I'm involved in include interactive museum guide systems and using motion tracking for 3D modeling.

As a student assistant I was helping Simon Völker by working with the eye-tracker and user study software.
Thesis Supervisor: Leonhard Lichtschlag
In my thesis I looked at the effects of a canvas presentation (e.g. with Fly) on the presenter.
