Information Visualization

My Work at Destatis

My work at Destatis, the Federal Statistical Office of Germany, in Berlin revolves around international and European statistical data and communicating them. This means I research relevant data, create suitable static or dynamic visualizations, and write accompanying articles.

Augmented Reality for InfoVis on Large Interactive Displays

PARVIS (Personal Augmented Reality for Information Visualization on Large Interactive Displays) combines large interactive displays and personal head-mounted Augmented Reality (AR) for information visualization to support data exploration and analysis.

Selections In Mobile Cross-Device Interfaces

In my Master’s thesis “Exploring Selection Management and Brushing and Linking for Mobile Cross-Device Interaction”, I developed a concept and prototype for combining multiple mobile devices to explore information visualizations. I focused on how to create, manage, and interact with these selections in mobile multi-device environments.

Flexible Trees

Flexible Trees allow for creating tree visualizations to fit a desired shape by using sketch-based interaction. It offers a simple way of generating tree layouts for infographic purposes by adding a meaningful shape to a tree visualization.

Languages As Data Jewellery

Data jewellery is often used to physically represent personal data, in our case: the languages a person speaks. It’s decorative and abstract and can function as an ice breaker and a form of self-expression.

Star Plots On Interactive Displays

The goal of this project was to develop a set of multi-touch interaction techniques for star plot visualizations and ideally to incorporate additional data into a single star plot.
