About me

Chris studied Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Würzburg. He works at the Human-Computer Interaction Group as research assistant and participates in the XRoads, Gib-Mir, and Simulator X projects.


XRoads explores novel and multimodal interaction techniques for tabletop games. It focusses Mixed Reality platforms that combine touch, speech, and gestures as input modalities for turn-based and real-time strategy games.
Multimodal interfaces (MMIs) are a promising alternative human-computer interaction paradigm. They are feasible for a wide rang of environments, yet they are especially suited if interactions are spatially and temporally grounded with an environment in which the user is (physically) situated, like virtual reality, mixed reality, human-robot interaction, and computer games.
Simulator X
Simulator X is a research testbed for novel software techniques and architectures for Real-Time Interactive Systems in VR, AR, MR, and computer games. It uses the central concept of semantic reflection based on a highly concurrent actor model to build intelligent multimodal graphics systems.
