    I joined the DMIR group for my PhD studies after receiving my master's degree in Computer Science at the University of Würzburg in 2021. In the MOTIV project, we work with voice-based digital interaction partners. Our goal is to help users of these devices learn about potential misconceptions, mindless interactions and resulting consequences.
