Research Work

I am an assistant professor researching visual interfaces for the interactive exploration and analysis of complex data. I am and have been involved in multiple research projects:

Interests

My research interests cover visualization and human-computer interaction with a special focus on:

  • Visual exploratory analysis of large and unstructured data
  • Guiding visual attention in complex visual displays
  • Interfaces and collaborative interaction techniques for emerging display environments (virtual reality, large-scale displays, multi-display environments, etc.)

For a publication list including also my previous publications, see DBLP.

Hobbies

  • skiing and ski touring
  • mountaineering and hiking
  • biking
  • spending time with my family

In both scatterplots shown here, the percentage of images with correctly predicted class labels (visualized as border color) is over 90%. We found that users can estimate these accuracies fairly well. Image complexity impacts overall performance, but the layout has very little effect on users’ estimations.
