Simone Kriglstein, studied computer science at the Vienna University of Technology and graduated with distinction in 2005. Her thesis dealt with “Visual Perception and Interface Design”. She received her Doctoral degree (Dr. techn., Computer Science, with distinction) from the University of Vienna in 2011. In her doctoral thesis she described an approach to the development process for ontology visualizations aided by human-centered design. From 2005 to 2007 she worked as Usability Engineer Consultant/User Interface Designer for several companies. Between 2007 and 2011 she worked at the University of Vienna as research assistant and teaching staff member (Faculty of Computer Science, Research Group Workflow Systems and Technology). Since 2011, she has worked on several projects at the University of Vienna (e.g., OCIS, Viz4PAIS, playthenet) and the Vienna University of Technology (e.g., CVAST). Between 2012 and 2014 she also worked as postdoctoral researcher at SBA Research.

Resourceful and proactive, she specializes in designing and evaluating of user interfaces and interaction methods in different fields, e.g. visualizations and games, to provide utility and user-friendly design concepts. Her work has been published in international journals as well as conference and workshop proceedings, e.g. ACM SIGCHI.
