Background and interests

I am an Associate Professor in mobile systems and HCI and I run together with Professor Holger Regenbrecht the HCI group at the University of Otago. I was previously a senior research at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision (Graz University of Technology, Austria) where I also obtained my PhD.

My main research interest is location-based mobile interfaces, where I work at the intersection of HCI, Computer Graphics, Computer Vision and Pervasive Computing. Previous to my work on mobile devices, I worked in the field of Spatial Augmented Reality and Holographic displays. My research methodology is both bottom-up (build and evaluating technology and interfaces) and top-down (application-driven). Over the years, I was involved in various academic and industrial projects as well as I am an active member within an international research community.

Note to students: The University of Otago is a great place to study, offers a very good research environment, and I do my best in offering interesting thesis topics and good supervision. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in working with me (Interns/Master/PhD) but make clear why you want to work with me and what experience you have on Mobile Systems/HCI. I also have a good overview about funding opportunities and scholarship options. Please also check our group page for more information:

Teaching

My teaching responsibilities include general topics in information science, programming for mobile devices and in particular mobile HCI and visual interfaces. In 2017 I am the paper coordinator for INFO203 - Human-Computer Interaction and User Experience - which is being offered for the first time; INFO351 - Special Topic: Human-Computer Interaction, also offered for the first time.

In 2015 and 2016, I was involved in:

  • TELE 303 Mobile Systems
  • TELE 404 Mobile Systems
  • INFO 221 Application Software Development
  • INFO 213 Business ICT Strategy
  • INFO 340 Interactive System Design (now offered as INFO351)
  • INFO 350 Special Topic – Mixed Reality Systems
  • INFO 410 Multimedia User Experience – Theory and Practice
  • INFO 470 Special Topic - Mobile interface/Mixed Reality Systems
  • BSNS 106 Information and Communication in Organisations

I further offer several projects and thesis options in the domain of mobile computing and HCI. Please contact me for a list of topics or come to my office for a chat.
