I'm leading the Junior Research Group "Computational Interaction and Mobility" (CIAO) at the Center for Scalable Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (ScaDS.AI) at Leipzig University. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science (summa cum laude) from the University of Cologne and my M.Sc. in Automotive Systems from the TU Berlin. In the CIAO group, we work at the intersection of machine learning, human-computer interaction, and mobility. Our goal is to develop computational models that simulate human-like interaction behavior in order to evaluate user interfaces and predict how users interact with them. These models are either data-driven or based on computational rationality.
