On January 26, 2023, Konstantin Klamka successfully defended his PhD thesis.

His topic Blending the Material and Digital World for Hybrid Interfaces addresses the question, how future user interfaces can be able to provide useful digital functionality while maintaining their physical properties and familiar patterns of use in the real world.

We are delighted that Albrecht Schmidt from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universit├Ąt (LMU) Munich agreed to serve as external reviewer for this thesis. After his great defense, the entire Interactive Media Lab and further guests came together to celebrate in a traditional restaurant.

We congratulate Konstantin Klamka on his remarkable dissertation and wish him all the best for the future.
