Research Teaching Publications

I'm a research assistant at the Media Computing Group.
I take a look at how Augmented Reality can be used to simplify the creation of digital models (e.g., for Personal Fabrication). Projects I'm involved in include interactive museum guide systems and using motion tracking for 3D modeling.

Student Assistants

NameProject
Kerstin Kreutz Future Lab App, Aixplorer
Sebastian Hueber Future Lab App
Oliver Nowak Personal Photonics

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.
