I am a design researcher. My research is concerned with the role of our body in our interactions with mobile phones. I explore new ways of making technology more human-friendly. I develop low-tech solutions for high-tech problems.
I am a professor for Interface and User Experience Design at the University of Wuppertal. I received my PhD from the Berlin University of the Arts, where I worked at the Design Research Lab, in collaboration with Telekom Innovation Labs. Previously, I worked for Nintendo of Europe and Marvel Comics. In the summer of 2014, I was a deputy professor for Interface Design at the Muthesius Kunsthochschule in Kiel, Germany. I speak Human and Computer.
I investigate embodied interaction with the digital world. In my five-minute TED talk, I give a brief overview over this effort. Also, feel free to have a look at the publications to which I have contributed.
