I studied at Saarland University where I received both my Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in computer science. During my studies there I worked as a student assistant at the DFKI Saarbrücken and the local Cognitive Psychology Unit.
I work in the area of human-computer interaction. In my Ph.D. research, I investigated displays that can actively support and enhance the perception of the user. This is achieved through the use of real-time eye-tracking, which can be used to adapt what is shown on the display in response to the user’s gaze. Through this technique, we are able to influence the perception of the user by controlling what is seen and where it is seen, even without the user noticing the manipulation. Since the manipulation is happening on a perceptual level and in response to the user’s gaze, we call this a perceptual gaze-contingent display. For more details have a look at the Deepview website.
