Ms. Julia Graefe studied Visual Computing (B.Sc.) at Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences and Ergonomics - Human Factors Engineering (M.Sc.) at the Technical University of Munich. As part of her master's thesis, she evaluated two HMI concepts for automated driving in a real driving setup.

In March 2021, Ms. Graefe started working as a research associate at the Chair of Ergonomics. In cooperation with the AUDI AG (INI.TUM), her research focuses on the design of adaptive in-vehicle human-machine interfaces.
