I am an assistant professor for Web Science/Human-Centered Computing at the Institute of Computer Science at Free University of Berlin. I’m part of the Networked Information Systems Research Group.

In my group, we research and design computational systems that make interactions between users, information and software both more useful and enjoyable. In our software development practice, we focus on user-centered design processes. Since this is an interdisciplinary field, our research work considers insights from fields such as visual and interaction design, web technologies, semantic technologies, and the social sciences.
