Hi, I'm Uwe Gruenefeld
An HCI researcher in love with Mixed Reality
Welcome to my homepage! If you are a student at the University of Duisburg-Essen and interested in a Bachelor or Master thesis with me, please do not hesitate to contact me! uwe.gruenefeld@uni-due.de


I am a Postdoc Researcher in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Duisburg-Essen. I am fascinated by all flavors of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), but Mixed Reality devices and technologies are particularly interesting to me. My research has mainly focused on investigating visual cues for locating out-of-view objects in Mixed Reality.
