Career

Area: Technology Experience

Field: Contextual Experience

Main Research: User-centered design, Assistive technology, Interaction design, Social innovation

Experience: Markus Garschall has many years of experience researching the relationship between humans and technology. He has participated in several national and European research projects related to the topic of active and healthy ageing, coordinating the projects vAssist (2011-2015) and SUCCESS (2017-2020). In his research he focuses on the the role of technlology in enabling social innovation and the design and evaluation of multi-modal user interfaces. As speaker and organizer of national and international events and workshops, Markus addresses communication and collaboration challenges related to AAL and eHealth innovation projects. Aiming at bringing together stakeholders from research, industry, care and the public sector, Markus is leading a working group on challenges in designing for an ageing society within the national innovation platform AAL Austria.
