I’m a Lecturer in Design at the Design Lab at the School of Architecture, Design and Planning at the University of Sydney. My research explores how to design and prototype interactions with emerging technologies, such as robots and autonomous systems. I am particularly passionate about interaction design for public urban spaces.

I hold a PhD from the Design Lab at the University of Sydney, which focused on the design of urban robotic interfaces to enable encounters with non-humanoid robots in cities. I hold a Bachelor and Master of Science in Media Informatics from the University of Munich, Germany. In the industry, I gained professional experience in Interface and User Experience Design for the Web, Mobile and Embedded Application Development for the Internet of Things, In-Vehicle Infotainment and Interactive Lighting Design.
