I'm a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. I work within the InfoVis Group as a research assistant and I’m advised by Tamara Munzner. My research interests include information visualization, visual analytics, and human-computer interaction.

Prior to UBC, I completed a Master program (Dipl.-Ing. degree) in Business Informatics at the University of Vienna, where I worked in the Visualization and Data Analysis Group on interactive visualizations for bike sharing data that can be used to inform urban planning. I gained further experience in the field of information visualization as a visiting research fellow in the Visual Computing Group at Harvard, and as an intern at Tableau Research in Palo Alto.

I helped in designing and restructuring courses for large undergrad classes at several universities and I have multiple years of experience as a teaching assistant for human-computer interaction and visualization courses.

As an independent consultant and web developer, I realize projects for a diverse range of clients across industries.
