About myself

Hi, I am Martin - a PhD student at TU Berlin in the field of Human Computer Interaction. As a member of the Weizenbaum Institute’s interdisciplinary research group “Criticality of AI”, I focus on Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI). In my PhD research projects, I am identifying quality criteria for interpretable systems. In empirical studies, I assess the practical value such systems provide for end-users and stakeholders. I plan to situate results in a framework that is intended to inform policymakers which data-driven systems can be made more transparent. With that, I also want to show which systems remain uninterpretable and should therefore not be used for sensitive decisions and public policy problems.​

My previous research was focused around spatial input for peephole displays. During my master’s in computer science I was working for the Mobile and Physical Interaction Group led by Prof. Jörg Müller, who also supervised my master thesis. I was also part of the Design Thinking Research Program upon finishing the Basic Track of HPI D-School. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Business Informatics of Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg where I wrote my bachelor thesis under the supervision of Martin Spindler and Prof. Raimund Dachselt.
