I am a Ph.D. student at the Interactive Media Lab Dresden working in the field of human-computer interaction with a focus on multi-touch interaction on large interactive surfaces, such as tabletops or powerwalls. While my main focus is on developing multi-touch gestures, I’m also interested in interfaces that use the combination of touch and pen as well as graspable tangible interfaces.

I was mainly involved in the DFG project GEMS – Graph Exploration and Manipulation on interactive Surfaces. Here we focused on combining information visualization and the interaction with these visualizations. I specifically addressed the support for exploration and manipulation of node-link diagrams through means of natural user interfaces. The current project CollabWall: Understanding Collaborative Work with Interactive Display Walls in Multi-Device Environments takes this another step further by considering the specific challenges regarding multiple users when analyzing data.
