|Dipl. Inform, Dr.-Ing.
Professor of HCI
at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in
Germany, chairing the Human Computer Interaction
group in the Computer Science and Media department
, in the Faculty of Media since February 2013. I now
lead our new HCI master (MSc) program
From autumn 2008 I
was a SICSA lecturer at the University
of Strathclyde, co-leading the
Mobiquitous Lab in Glasgow,
UK. I retain a guest affiliation with the CIS Dept. at the
University of Strathclyde. I worked at several places before,
including the UK's Open University, Sussex University, the
Vienna University of Technology, and the HitLabNZ, following my
PhD in Bremen, Germany.
These include visiting research periods (for a theses) or if
you have any other ideas for collaborations, drop me an email!
Weimar students: if you are interested in doing a
bachelor/master thesis in HCI, please contact me!
co-chaired the TEI Graduate Student
Consortium with Elise van den Hoven and Connie Goldsteijn
in February 2016 in Eindhoven!
ToCHI!! article The To-and-Fro of Sense Making:
Supporting Users'Active Indexing in Museums " to appear in
2016, as well as two joint articles with Trevor Hogan ('The
Elicitation Interview Technique: Capturing People’s

We've published an interactions
article presenting some of the core ideas
and motivations of our EU meSch project that
UoS is involved in. meSch has the goal of
co-designing novel platforms for the creation of tangible
exhibits at heritage sites, based on DIY technologies, so that
curators can offer visitors new interactive experiences by
means of material interaction with smart objects.
research interests are the design and user experience of
'beyond the desktop' interaction (this includes multitouch
surfaces, tangible interaction, whole-body interaction, mobile
devices, and physical(ly embedded) computing), support of
social/collaborative interactions, and, very generally, the
social/societal implications of technology. One of my specific
areas of interest is in interactive museum installations.
We continue our work
on media facades and urban space
installations at BUW, and e.g. run student group
projects on these topics. We often collaborate with the Media
Architecture Master program, and have jointly developed an
interactive facade mapping for a festival in Meiningen.
Report on creatorsproject
about the facade mapping event in the city of
Meiningen in August 2014, celebrating the 100
year commemoration of Duke George II . Our students built a
machine for the audience to steer the projections with.
Costumes' student project was demoed at the WearIT
Festival in Berlin in October

Need to update with Weimar photos!!!
The best thing about
the Livingstone Tower is the views of Glasgow...

Over summer 2010, we conducted
a formative user study of five touchscreen and interactive
table prototype installations for the National Trust Scotland.
The new Robert Burns Birthplace museum
in Alloway hosts the final installations and some of the
flash-based games we tested are also available on their
website. The museum has had over a million visitors since its
opening in Dec. 2010 already...
