Academic Information

I'm an Associate Researcher at the Institute of Computer Science of the University of Cologne. After finishing my Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronics at the Cooperative State University of Baden-Wurttemberg in Karlsruhe I completed my Master of Science in Automotive Systems at the TU Berlin. During my studies, I worked at the department of Automated Systems Engineering Technologies at the TU Berlin and at MBition. In March 2019 I started my PhD with Prof. Dr. Andreas Vogelsang at the TU Berlin and moved to the University of Cologne in August 2020. My main area of interest is the analysis and modeling of event sequence data, in particular the analysis of touch-based interactions with In-vehicle Information Systems. Furthermore, I'm curious about how this data needs to be analyzed and visualized such that UX experts can gain the maximum benefit from it.
