CV

Polina Häfner (born Stoyanova) studied from September 2004 to March 2009 at the Faculty of German Engineering Education and Industrial Management (FDIBA) of the Technical University of Sofia according to the University of Karlsruhe (KIT) computer science curriculum. She wrote the bachelor thesis "Methods of Virtual Reality for configuring a product by customer co-design" at the Institute for Information Management in Engineering (IMI) at the University of Karlsruhe in cooperation with the FDIBA faculty. From April 2009 to May 2012 she studied informatics at the KIT. Her diploma thesis "Development of an intuitive, easy-to-use human-machine interface for immersive environments" dealt with one of the challenging topics of virtual reality - the interaction. During her studies at the KIT she worked as a research assistant at the IMI. She participated in different projects (MINT-Box Drive, EMO-VR) and developed the course "Virtual Reality Practical Course", which she still supervises. Since June 2012 she is a researcher at the IMI and deals mainly with basic and applied research in the field of Virtual Reality, Human-Computer Interaction and virtual learning environments. 

In maternity leave from 10. August 2018.
