Experience:

My research focuses on user experience of physically or mentally disabled people handling assistive technology. I currently deal with the question how persuasive technology can foster a healthy lifestyle and adherence to medical treatment.
In several national and international projects I gained experience in the design and evaluation of technical solutions in the area of Active Assisted Living as well as qualitative and quantitative research.
