Martin Murer is an Interaction Designer and Researcher at the Center for Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Salzburg, focusing on design driven research around tangible, embedded and embodied interaction. He holds a Master’s Degree in Information Design from University of Applied Sciences Graz. Since 2008, Martin was involved in multiple national and international research projects at the Center, contributing his designs and research activities to industrial, automotive, and domestic applications. Being enthusiastic about taking things apart, Martin works towards a PhD that seeks to explore de-constructive practices (e.g., un-crafting, taking things apart) in the realm of interactive systems and interaction design. Martin regularly advises various startups and initiatives on issues around interaction design and user experience (e.g. baningo).
