I am a PhD student at Ulm University in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. I am interested in designing eye-based interaction designs for augmented and virtual realty head-mounted displays.
I aim to investigate how AR and VR HMDs change and influence our viewing behavior. Since with those devices digital screens are moving closer to the eyes, largely (AR) or entirely (VR) occupying our field of view, our eyes will be strained more than ever in everyday life. This is calling for concepts and strategies for eye-based interaction design to give the eyes an opportunity to deal with digital content without being injured. I therefore propose to design content for HMDs explicitly around the unique properties and abilities of the human eye and the visual system to avoid visual discomfort or even possible impairments.
