I am an Assistant Professor at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. My research focusses on understanding how humans perceive and interact with digital information, and to build technology that goes beyond the flat displays of PCs and smartphones to advances our capabilities when interacting with the digital world. To achieve this, I create and study enabling technologies and computational approaches that control when, where and how virtual content is displayed to increase the usability of AR and VR interfaces.

Before CMU, I was a postdoc at ETH Zurich in the AIT Lab of Otmar Hilliges. I completed my PhD at TU Berlin in the Computer Graphics group, advised by Marc Alexa. I have worked with Jörg Müller at TU Berlin, the Media Interaction Lab in Hagenberg, Austria, Stacey Scott and Mark Hancock at the University of Waterloo, and interned Microsoft Research (Redmond) in the Perception & Interaction Group.
