Katja Krug

After finishing my Bachelor’s degree in media computer science in Nuremberg, with my thesis focusing around SLAM algorithms and self-driving vehicles, I pursued my Master’s degree at the TU Dresden. During my studies, I was able to explore the world of Mixed Reality and discovered my fascination with it, especially within its application in the medical field. Therefore, after finishing my Master’s, I started working at the chair of Multimedia Technology in the scope of a research project revolving around enhancing laparoscopic surgery through Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality. Here, I mainly researched topics such as pre- and intraoperative data visualization, and innovative interaction methods and technologies in Augmented Reality. Eventually, I joined CeTI in 2022, where I now get to merge all my areas of interest: Medicine, robots, Artificial Intelligence, Mixed Reality and novel interaction techniques and modalities.
