|Dipl. Inform, Dr.-Ing.
Professor of HCI
at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in
Germany, chairing the Human Computer Interaction
group in the Computer Science and Media department
, in the Faculty of Media since February 2013. I
lead our HCI master (MSc) program
From autumn 2008 I
was a SICSA lecturer at the University
of Strathclyde, co-leading the
Mobiquitous Lab in Glasgow,
UK. I retained a guest affiliation with the CIS Dept. at the
University of Strathclyde until 2016. I worked at several
places before, including the UK's Open University, Sussex
University, the Vienna University of Technology, and the
HitLabNZ, following my PhD in Bremen, Germany.
These include visiting research periods (for a theses) or if
you have any other ideas for collaborations, drop me an email!
Weimar students: if you are interested in doing a
bachelor/master thesis in HCI, please contact me!
Eva was an SC (Subcommittee Chair)
for the 'Experience' theme of ACM DIS 2017 in
developed by a student project and my PhD student Michaela
Honauer have been staged successfully in June 2017 with the
children-and-youth ballet of the Theatre Gera/Altenburg, in a
performance of 'Die kleine Meerjungfrau' (the little mermaid)
and will be shown in 2018 again... Our team developed costumes
for the seahorse, jellyfish, and for the sea witch, in
collaboration with the theatre house.
ACM ToCHI article The To-and-Fro
of Sense Making: Supporting Users'Active Indexing in Museums
" published, as well as two joint articles with Trevor
Hogan ('The Elicitation Interview Technique: Capturing
People’s Experiences of Data Representations' in
IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, and
"Towards a Design Space for Multisensory Data
Representation" in Interacting with Computers.
And we were involved in 4 presentations at
CHI'17 (case study, 2 full papers, ToCHI
We've published an interactions
article presenting some of the core ideas
and motivations of our EU meSch project that
UoS is involved in. meSch has the goal of
co-designing novel platforms for the creation of tangible
exhibits at heritage sites, based on DIY technologies, so that
curators can offer visitors new interactive experiences by
means of material interaction with smart objects.
meSch finished in February 2017 and received
very enthusiastic reviews from the evaluators :-) We are only
sad that it is over, it was such a great project to be on!.
interests are the design and user experience of
'beyond the desktop' interaction (this includes multitouch
surfaces, tangible interaction, whole-body interaction, mobile
devices, and physical(ly embedded) computing), support of
social/collaborative interactions, and, very generally, the
social/societal implications of technology. One of my specific
areas of interest is in interactive museum installations.
My group also
researches on e-textiles and interactive costumes for the
stage, media architecture, augmented learning systems, and
actuated / shape-changing interfaces.
We often collaborate with the Media
Architecture Master program, and jointly developed an
interactive facade mapping for a festival in
Meiningen. We also were part of a large team
developing an installation/event
'Die Ermittler' for the Weimar
Kunstfest 2016 (photos here)
Report on creatorsproject
about the facade mapping event in the city of
Meiningen in August 2014, celebrating the 100
year commemoration of Duke George II . Our students built a
machine for the audience to steer the projections with.
Costumes' student project was demoed at the WearIT
Festival in Berlin in October
Eva co-chaired the TEI
Graduate Student Consortium 2016
She was a TPC member
for ACM UbiComp'16, an
AC for DIS'16 and DIS'17 on
the 'Experience' track, on the TPC for
Creativity&Cognition 2015 and
2017, an AC for ACM CHI'14
and CHI'13, Theme Chair on the 'Design Processes' theme
for ACM DIS'12, and ACM CHI'12
Interactivity Explorations chair.
Albrecht Schmidt and me edited a special
issue of the German Computer Science
Assocatiations main magazine
Informatik-Spektrum on 'Interaction Beyond the
Desktop' (Vol 37, Iss. 5) Oct. 2014
Spring 2011 to end of 2014 I was forum editor for an
article series on Tangible and Embodied Interaction for
ACM's interaction magazine. Check out my intro article in the ACM DL and
the list of published

designed version of the Tangible Interaction Framework

Need to update with Weimar photos!!!
The best thing about
the Livingstone Tower is the views of Glasgow...
Photos from Glasgow and Scotland - beautiful
city and country...
