I am a PhD student in the Advanced Interactive Technologies group of the Institut für Pervasive Computing at ETH Zurich. My PhD supervisor is Professor Otmar Hilliges. I received my Master in Information Engineering from University of Konstanz with a focus on interactive systems. Before joining the Advanced Interactive Technologies Lab I worked as a research assistant at the HCI group of University of Konstanz. My research interest lies in the area of algorithms which are capable of optimizing subjective factors like preferences, aesthetics or usability. Currently, I am working on the optimization of quadrotor camera trajectories according to user goals and an intelligent notification system for text messages.
