Donald  Degraen

Hi! I'm Donald.


I'm a postdoc in human-computer interaction at the University of Duisburg-Essen with Prof. Dr. Stefan Schneegass and a guest researcher at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) with Prof. Dr. Antonio Krüger.

I previously completed my PhD (Dr.-Ing.) in the Ubiquitous Media Technology Lab (UMTL) at Saarland University and was part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie network through the DISTRO-ITN.

My research explores the intersection of haptics, fabrication and virtual reality to provide methods and tools for designing haptic experiences.
