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. In my fellowship-funded dissertation at the University of Oldenburg, I focused on visualizing objects outside the human field of view. Today, my research focuses on the intersection of Mixed Reality and Artificial Intelligence, including topics such as robotics, haptics, and security & privacy.
