I received my Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien emphasizing on Rehabilitation Engineering and my Master's degree in Human-Centered Computing at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Campus Hagenberg, where I worked on the identification of cognitive load using physiological measurement techniques such as the heart-rate variability (HRV). As I had grown increasingly interested in the perception of multidimensional visualization techniques, I decided to transition to visualization/sivual analytics research for my PhD. I am an external lecturer for Management Reporting und Visual Analytics at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Campus Steyr at the Institut of Accounting, Controlling, and Financial Management. Furthermore, I hold workshops in the field of state-of-the-art reporting at the Controller Institut GmbH. Prior to studying Computer Science, I was a music performer for 11 years. I started singing, dancing, and acting at 10 and still practice playing the piano as a creative outlet.
The main opjective of this course is to convey the basics of a perception-optimized reporting system. What is the state-of-the art of reporting tools? How do I best customize reports to my audience? Contents and messages are transformed into meaningful reports.
In my PhD, I work on provenance data from interaction logs using dimensionality-reduction techniques onboarding of visualization types and dashboards consisting of multiple visualizations as well as the perceived cognitive demand while interacting with visualizations.Link to the visual data science group is here.

Working on the designs of dashboards with Microsoft Excel, business intelligence tools as well as interactive visualizations itself.
Working in an outrageous team for the FFG project "User-Centered Interactive Visualization of Big Data” (Nr. 856316), which focusses on visualization of “big data” for performance of complex cognitive tasks in daily business activities, provides me numerous insights in human-computer-interaction, cognition, cross-device-collaboration as well as information visualization and acquisition of business partners.Link to the HIVE research group (project USIVIS) is here.
Being responsible for the financial reporting, for planning resources on the project and for organizing meetings, enriches me in project management skills in the health and public sector.
I was responsible for the construction of an aerosol measurement setup with regard to testing particle flows in a rapid prototyped human nose model.
Singing, dancing and acting in combination while representing the tale of woe from Jesus, empowers tremendously.

First time getting in touch with radiological, imaging techniques and their application areas like CT, MRI and nuclear medicine. Furthermore, I had the opportunity in supporting in service and maintenance work.
Expanding my knowledge in interactive visualizations, by putting focus on the capture of a users' intent in provenance graphs, uncertainties, and introduction of new visualization types.
