I am a PhD candidate in the field of Human-Computer Interaction in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bayreuth. As part of the Serious Games Chair, led by Prof. Dr. Jörg Müller, I focus on model-based optimal control of physical user interfaces, in particular holographic displays based on acoustic levitation technology. From December 2017 to March 2021, I was part of the European project Levitate (Horizon 2020), with a research stay at the lab of Prof. Sriram Subramanian at the University of Sussex in 2019.
I was awarded an Erasmus Mundus Joint Degree of Master of Science in Mathematical Modeling in Engineering by the University of Hamburg and the University of L'Aquila. Previously, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics from Jacobs University Bremen.
