Research on Human-Computer-Interaction, User Experience Design, Interactive Systems and Mental Workload.
I am researching on the application of HCI principles to safety-critical systems. I focus on people using interactive systems while being involved in mentally demanding tasks. During my previous research I designed and developed interactive systems for car drivers to support them ahead of critical situations. I developed mobile solutions for emergency teams to facilitate the triage processes during disasters. Furthermore, I developed collaborative multi-touch interfaces in order to prepare rescue teams for large scale crisis situations. I analysed the process of collaborative problem solving on multi-touch interfaces as well as on mobile devices. Additionally, I dealed with the usage of RFID devices for identifying and tracking patients in emergencies. I developed a heuristic for evaluating the usability of user-interfaces in lifethreating, time-critical and unstable situations. Moreover, I developed an concept for integrating information from social media in the crisis management processes. I developed mobile apps for guiding and supporting citizens during disasters. Last but not least, I developed a virtual reality system for evaluating interfaces for emergency situations.
