I am a master's student at RWTH Aachen University, mainly interested in applying computer science techniques to solve challenging problems of Human-Computer Interaction. I also work at Fraunhofer (FIT Institute), developping tools for the Internet of Things.
In 2014, I finished an internship at Baidu Research (IDL lab) working on the development of Baidu Eye, a head-mounted device that enables natural interactions with company's search and other services.
Prior to that, I was an intern at Microsoft Research Asia (former HCI group) with focus on research and development of wearable computing devices (i.e. Traceband) as well as interactive interfaces (i.e. Metro Interactive Tiles).
