Caroline Leroy

Member of Multimodal Interaction lab

Since August 2017, Caroline Leroy has been a researcher and doctoral student at the IWM in the Multimodal Interaction lab. As part of the "Visitetisch" project, she is developing an interactive multi-touch table application in cooperation with the University Hospital of Tübingen that is aimed to support physicians in their diagnostic reasoning. Motivated by the development of the multi-touch table application, she is working on the question of which functions of the application (e.g. text highlighting) and which form of presentation of multiple documents (simultaneous versus sequential view) support text comprehension, and how specific interaction patterns (e.g. grouping of documents during reading) are related to text comprehension.

Caroline Leroy studied cognitive sciences at the University of Tübingen (M.Sc. 2015). During her studies she worked as a research assistant at the Psychological Institute of the University of Tübingen.
