Previously, she held a professorship for Media Informatics at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences and at Berlin University of Art and Design, where she was also the Vice Dean of Research. Her research interests lie at the intersection of human-computer interaction and interactive product design, focusing on how to make novel technologies more usable and useful. To date, Katrin’s research has focused on technologies and domains including mobile and wearable systems, virtual, augmented and mixed reality, as well as interactive exhibitions.

After receiving her PhD from T-Labs at Technical University Berlin, Katrin was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Stuttgart in 2014–2015, where she worked in the Human-Computer Interaction Lab headed by Albrecht Schmidt. Her work experience includes research visits and internships at the Social NUI Group at the University of Melbourne, INRIA (Bordeaux, FR), Glasgow University (Glasgow, UK), CSIRO (Sydney, AUS), and HITLab (Christchurch, NZ) as well as working as an interface designer at the Jewish Museum Berlin.

Katrin has published at the most competitive conferences in her field, including ACM CHI, ACM TEI and ACM MobileHCI. She is actively involved in the research community. Most notably, she was General Chair of the German Conference on Mensch & Computer (MuC) 2019, Program Chair at TEI 2021, AHs 2019, and MUM 2018, as well as Late Breaking Work Chair at CHI 2021 and Student Research Competition Chair of CHI 2019 and CHI 2020.
