I am a lecturer and post-doctoral researcher (wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter) at the Chair for Information Science. In my research I use a variety of different techniques to learn about how people behave with information and use what I learn to design tools to assist them and work in a way that aligns with how they think and behave.
I have done some work, including a PhD, on managing and re-finding personal information. I am interested in how people search for fun because current systems don't really support this well. I have also recently become interested in information systems that help people lead more healthy lifestyles. You can read more about this work on my homepage and in my publications. You can also find information about the classes I teach at Regensburg.
I was previously an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow and then lecturer at the University of Erlangen.
