My research interest is in the foundations of design, models of design processes, and applications of design in various domains. My current research focuses on design theories, creativity in design, and the design of participatory systems. Practical applications are investigated to acquire theoretical insights and these insights are tested by means of practical cases in various domains.

With a background in psychology and design I am interested in the interaction design of systems based on scientifically sound and grounded research. My focus is on the design and evaluation of augmented reality systems for real time support of police agents in the field.
The goal is to recognize locations and static objects in order to provide an agent with situation relevant information.
Understanding and mitigating the cognitive stressors of everyday field-work to improve situational awareness, effectiveness and task-load are at the core of my research. Furthermore, the personal as well as organizational impact of the employment of AR technology is being investigated.
