Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Vienna, Austria, with a great interest in Human-Computer Interaction, music and design.
My research is motivated by human-centred computing, studying user experiences, design thinking, art-based research approaches and HCI-related qualitative and quantitative methods.
The topics of my scientific projects are: to study new ways of STEM education in schools and university teaching using electronic music instruments; to develop new instruments for musical expression; and finding concepts to create novel audience experiences in live music.
Before my academic career I worked as a software engineer, studied informatics, musicology and philosophy, and had a recording studio as freelance musician.

Voluntarily and in my spare time I am the chairman of the organising committee of the Rudolfina-Redoute. This traditional Viennese ball has its origin in 1899 and is the oldest and last remaining masked ball of its kind. Every year about 4.000 people from all around the world attend the Rudolfina-Redoute on Carnival Monday in the Wiener Hofburg.
