Staatsexamen FU Berlin, PhD Waikato
In 2009 I completed my PhD in an interdisciplinary topic covering Human-Computer Interaction and Information Systems with the thesis "Specifying Single-user and Collaborative Profiles for Alerting Systems". Subsequently, I took up lecturing at the University of Waikato and am now a Senior Research Programmer at the University.
Prior to that I was tutoring Computer Science at the University of Waikato and Computing Skills at the University of Auckland.
Before I came to New Zealand I have worked in the development of software at the Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum and at the Institute of Medical Informatics of the University Hospital Benjamin Franklin in Berlin.
My interests include:
I am also interested in Health Informatics, Software Engineering and Social Aspects of Computing (Education, Women in Computing).
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Information Systems (Wikipedia Miner, Alerting Systems, Digital Libraries, Visual Languages)
- Interaction mechanisms for tools for the creative arts
