I am interested in how people perceive technology and how we can use technology to improve our well-being. Within the IXD Group I focus on User Experience and Positive Psychology and how we can use these theories to design technology and work contexts and to coach people. Recently, I had the chance to combine these two passions as a guest researcher at the Greater Good Science Center in Berkeley. After studying psychology I have worked in human-machine-interaction, both in industry and in research. My PhD focused on psychological aspects in ethical research concerning security technology.


  • Security through technology
  • User Experience (concept and evaluation methods)
  • Positive Psychology in general but especially its application in work contexts, technology design and coaching
