About Me

Janin Koch

PhD Candidate at Aalto University

I am a doctoral candidate in Human-Computer Interaction in the User Interfaces Group of Prof. Antti Oulasvirta at Aalto University in Helsinki. I hold a Master degree in Business Information Systems from the Technical University Darmstadt with a focus on Management and Human-Computer Interaction. After writing my Master’s Thesis in HCI at the MobileLife Research Center in Stockholm, I went to industry to collect more work experience. In 2015, I decided to pursue an academic career and started my PhD at Aalto University.

My research interest lies in collaborative designing systems. In my work, I aim to define, study and evaluate human-machine interaction for creating valuable designs together with intelligent machines. Taking this human-centered approach, I use knowledge from psychology, design and AI to enable systems to act on a human equal stand. I believe that computers and humans have distinct skills to add to such a collaboration.
