I am a PhD student and Project Assistant in the Visual
Data Science Lab at the Johannes Kepler Universtity Linz in Austria under the supervision of Marc Streit. My research focuses on
interaction provenance using dimensionality reduction techniques and onboarding for interactive
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.

In my PhD, I work on provenance data from interaction logs using dimensionality-reduction techniques
visualization types and dashboards consisting of multiple visualizations as well as the perceived
cognitive demand while interacting with visualizations.

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.
