Field: Contextual Experience

Main Research: HCI, Gamification, Serious Games, Persuasive Technologies, Accessibility

Experience: I am interested in how people interact with technology and how they experience this interaction. My current research focus is on gamification approaches in the context of persuasive technologies, digital games and accessibility for visually impaired and blind people. In the numerous national and international research projects I was involved in, I could gain wide experience in the design and evaluation of interactive systems.
