Martin holds a Ph.D. from Saarland University, where he worked in the Human-Computer Interaction and Interactive Technologies Lab. He received a M.Sc. degree from Saarland University and a B.Sc. degree from Darmstadt University of Technology (both in computer science).
His Ph.D. research is situated in the fields of body-worn devices. His interests are novel body-worn displays and sensors that are directly augmenting the human body. He is investigating how they can be used in combination with current mobile devices, e.g. head-mounted displays and smart watches, and being used as the next-generation of mobile computing.
DeformWear are tiny wearable devices that leverage single-point deformation input on various body locations. This enables expressive and precise input using high-resolution pressure, shear, and pinch deformations.
SkinMarks are thin and conformal skin electronics for on-body interaction. They enable precisely localized input and visual output on strongly curved and elastic body landmarks.
We propose iSkin, a novel class of skin-worn sensors for touch input on the body. iSkin is a very thin sensor overlay, made of biocompatible materials, and is flexible and stretchable.
More Than Touch
An elicitation study on how people interact on skin for controlling mobile devices. Investigates skin-specific input modalities, gestures and their associated mental modals, and preferred input locations.
On Body Displays
On body displays leverage instant availability and human physiology for personal and shared information display.
