Field of Research

  • Investigation of visual paths during the analysis of technical systems
  • Investigation of visual paths in the synthesis of production-specific components
  • Gaze-Aware Design Guidelines
  • Investigation of gaze paths during the use of feedback
  • Eye-tracking with the measurement of gaze entropy
  • Cognitive Load
  • Machine Learning in Assistance Systems

Research Focus

  • Derivation of analysis methods for design engineers

Bachelor- / Mastertheses

  • If you are interested in a B.Sc. / M.Sc. thesis or a literature review/research internship, please send me an email with your application and a grade transcript.

  • I always have open positions and do not post them all. If you are interested in the field of machine learning, assistance systems, eye-tracking, setting up experiments, data analysis of eye-tracking raw data, cognitive load etc., I am always looking for motivated students. Especially those who love to be creative and also like to take challenges.

  • Check out some interesting links here:
    SpritzJet spin-off from an eye-tracking research; eye-tracking robot control; gaze eye-tracking control.

  • I would like to set up an eye-tracking assistance/feedback lab with you.

  • Current bachelor- and master-theses can be found here.


  • An overview of the publications can be found at ResearchGate
