Simon is a PhD researcher at OFFIS investigating novel interaction possibilities and application areas of mixed reality. He holds a Master’s degree in Engineering of Socio-Technical Systems from the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg.
At present, he is employed by the ZEIT project, researching the use of virtual reality as a communication tool for individuals receiving care in nursing homes and their relatives. Thereby, he extents the concept of solely visual multi-user virtual reality scenarios by incorporating additional modalities, in particular haptic stimuli. By doing so, he pursues the objective of creating more immersive virtual reality experiences through which deeper emotional connectedness can be shared among users.
