Short Bio

Martin is a PhD student in the area Tangible Interaction at the Telecooperation Lab headed by Prof. Dr. Max Mühlhäuser. He was a scholar funded by AGT Germany and received two master degrees in computer science (with a minor in psychology) and visual computing from TU Darmstadt in 2013. His master thesis dealt with personal in- and output on interactive surfaces to support fluid transitions between individual and group work. He is a member of Software Campus, a program of the German government which combines scientific research with hands-on management practice, where he led the project Printeract. Since the second half of 2017 he works on 3DIA, a research project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Research Projects

Off-Line Sensing
Off-line sensors are passive 3D-printed sensors that detect one-time interactions without requiring active electronics or power.
Flexibles are 3D-printed flexible tangibles that are deformation-aware and operate on capacitive touchscreens.
Liquido is a low-cost and easy-to-apply method to make your 3D printed objects tilt and motion sensitive by embedding liquids.
Capricate is a fabrication pipeline that enables users to easily design and 3D print customizable touch-sensitive objects.
Permulin is centred on the idea of providing both personal and shared in- and output for collaborating users.
EarPut is a novel interface concept, which instruments the ear as an interactive surface for touch-based gesture interactions.
