About me

picture of me

Welcome to my homepage! My name is Florian Echtler, and I'm a researcher in human-computer interaction. I received my PhD in computer science from TUM in December 2009 and after a position as a security researcher at Siemens Corporate Technology in 2010/11, I am currently a junior professor for computer science and media at the venerable Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. My research area here is Mobile Media.

I have also occasionally been called a nerd, a geek and a hacker1. I consider the latter to be quite a compliment. :-)

On the pages listed on the left, you can find information on my research, publications and talks as well as some other projects, software I wrote etc.

In case you are wondering about the strange "Matrix Industries" branding: that was inspired by this book and by the late hacker group "L0pht Heavy Industries". There's no connection to the great movie with the same name (nor to the not-so-great sequels).
