Hi, my name is Gian-Luca. I am a passionate musician and PhD student at the HCI Lab at the University of Bremen. My research focuses on how humans use navigation devices. I love investigating human behaviour in the field and get my hands dirty. If I'm not engaging in bicycle navigation studies I play drums in my punk rock band.
Research focus: Geo-HCI & Mobile interaction with a focus on pedestrian and bicycle navigation.
Study focus: Human-Computer Interaction, Artificial Intelligence. Final grade: 1.1
Study focus: Linguistic and Semiotics.
Study focus: Scientific, theoretical and practical examination of multi-media systems and software development. Final grade: 1.5
