My research focuses on secure management of large scale socio-technical systems. With a particular interest on understanding and managing confidentiality, integrity, trust, privacy, and other security properties and on studying the computational foundation of self-organizing, self-healing and self-configuring systems, both in the context of socio-technical systems. I believe that, in general, the really interesting research challenges can only be solved by truly multidisciplinary research that combines expertise from researchers with a variety of academic backgrounds.

My research focuses on designing engaging environments for participatory systems. In participatory systems new social structures, communication and coordination networks are emerging. New types of interaction emerge that require new types of governance and participation. Enabled by technology these structures span physical, temporal and relational distance in merging realities. Using augmented reality, I research environments for virtual co-location in which individuals can virtually be at any place in the world and coordinate their activities with others and exchange their experiences. Using serious games, I research on how to create effective training or assessment environments. In this research, I integrate my earlier research results on intelligent and context-adaptive collaboration support, collaborative storytelling for knowledge elicitation and decision-making, and design patterns for computer-mediated interaction.
