Dr. Pascal Knierim

Pascal Knierim is a Postdoctoral Researcher and Lecturer in the Usable Security and Privacy Group at the Bundeswehr University Munich, Germany. He obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2020 from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. In between his academic career, he developed novel interaction concepts and rich prototypes at Microsoft Research and Nokia. His research focus includes usable security at the intersection of human-computer interaction and mixed reality. He investigates how to enhance input and output modalities for mixed reality applications and how they will impact our everyday lives. Pascal is always looking for motivated students interested in running a final thesis in the areas of Usable Security, Ubiquitous Computing, and Mixed Reality.
