Introduction

Since 2013, I am an external PhD student working on a dissertation in cooperation with the R&D department of Unister GmbH, Leipzig. In my PhD thesis, I investigate the analysis and optimization of users' interactions with search-driven web applications from a design thinking point of view. In particular, my research is concerned with user-centered approaches to result relevance and user experience in the specific context of search engine results pages. The project is funded with an industrial PhD scholarship granted by the SAB.

In 2007, I started my studies of computer science at the University of Koblenz. However, after three semesters, I switched to RWTH Aachen University, where I received my Bachelor's degree in August 2010. My Bachelor's thesis dealt with the suitability of Google Wave in the context of e-learning. In September 2010, I started my Master's studies at ETH Zurich, specializing in Information Systems. My Master's thesis was concerned with crowdsourced adaptation of websites for touch devices. I received my Master's degree in 2012, before starting a 6-month internship at the R&D department of Unister GmbH.
