About me

David is a third-year PhD student, he works in the BMBF-funded research project “ViTraS” within the HCI group at the University of Würzburg. The ViTraS project develops therapeutic methods based on a controlled modulation of body perception and behavioral patterns using current Mixed, Augmented, and Virtual Reality (XR for short) technologies.

Davids research topic is focused on the plausibility of virtual humans and their impact on users’ subjective XR experience. His PhD thesis is supervised by Prof. Marc Erich Latoschik and Prof. Carolin Wienrich.

David finished degrees in Computer Science & Media (B.Sc.) at the Technical University of Nuremberg and Human-Computer Interaction (M.Sc.) at the University of Würzburg.
