I am originally from Germany and currently live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I graduated in 2018 with my PhD in Human-Computer Interaction & Design Research at the School of Interactive Arts + Technology (SIAT) at Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I worked under the supervision of Professors Ron WakkaryPeter-Paul Verbeek (University of Twente, Netherlands), and Carman Neustaedter at the Everyday Design Studio

I hold a Diplom - which is a German graduate degree comparable with an honours bachelor's degree - in Information Science & Engineering from Hochschule Darmstadt (h_da) and a Masters of Arts in Communication Planning and Design from Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG) Schwäbisch Gmünd, a small design school firmly rooted in the era of Bauhaus and especially curricular developments of the Ulm School of Design.

After finishing my Master's degree in 2009, I worked for nearly two years in academic management helping develop the interaction design program at the HfG Schwaebisch Gmuend, one of the first designated interaction design programs in Germany. In addition, I taught several courses at both h_da and HfG while most recently teaching Interaction Design studio classes at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. I have also recently helped develop a cross-disciplinary graduate program in human-centered design at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.

What I do at UID

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at UID mostly working with Heather Wiltse and Johan Redström on the research project "Design Philosophy for Things that Change" funded by the Wallenberg Foundation.


My research interests include interaction design, research through design, speculative design, human-technology relations, philosophy of technology (specifically technological mediation theory, postphenomenology and other posthumanist approaches) and its relation to design research and practice, and human-animal interaction.
