I studied psychology at the University of Regensburg and obtained my PhD in psychology on user interfaces for elderly people at the University of Wuppertal. In 1992 I began as a researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering and joined Siemens Corporate Technology in 1997 as a researcher for usability engineering. From 2000 until 2002, I was head of the Munich office and the usability engineering department of the usability consultancy User Interface Design GmbH (UID). Since September 2002 I have been professor for ergonomics and usability at Stuttgart Media University where I have established the User Experience Research Lab. I am the Vice Dean for Research of Stuttgart Media University’s Faculty of Information and Communication and the representative of the Information Experience and Design Research Group.
