About

Thomas Holz is a Ph.D. student at the School of Computer Science & Informatics at University College Dublin. He is a graduate of the University of Applied Sciences Harz, Germany, and completed an internship at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics in Darmstadt, Germany, as part of the GEIST project, which uses mobile Augmented Reality in a cultural heritage context. His research examines the application of Augmented Reality to robotics and its effect on human-robot interaction. Specifically, his thesis focuses on the idea of a Mixed Reality Agent, which can be exemplified as adding a virtual character on top of a physical robot. This approach offers compelling applications in the development and personalisation of robots. Mr. Holz is currently running a number of studies to investigate the interaction properties of these Mixed Reality Agents.
