Information

We are living in an environment that is increasingly pervaded with technology. The objective of my research is to contribute to the optimal design of human-technology cooperation and to the development of theories and methods of engineering psychology. This comprises both theory-based characterization of human-machine interaction and multidimensional evaluation of concepts, prototypes, and systems.

My research interests pertain to fields such as sustainability, energy efficiency, health, mobility, and automation. I focus on aspects of user acceptance, user experience, users-system-interaction, and interface design.

I am always looking forward to exchange about topics of human-technology interaction and the user perspective on technical systems!
