I'm senior scientist at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. My research interests lie generally in the fields of HCI, Information Visualization, Data Analytics, and Games. My current research focus is on analysis and visualization of game telemetry data. I have a doctorate degree in natural sciences and a diploma degree in computer science. My work has been published in international journals and conference proceedings, such as Computers & Graphics, Entertainment Computing, SIGCHI, FDG and ACE.
