Research Interests

  • Affective Computing
  • Positive Computing
  • Wearable Interaction
  • Gesture Interaction

Available Bachelor and Master Thesis Topics (nur Englisch)

  • Thermal feedback on emotional self-regulation and cognitive load. 
    • Under this topic, we are looking for and solving the problems of negtive emotions (e.g. sadness, anger, frustration ...) in specific user scenarios by applying thermal haptic feedback on the skin. 
  • Haptics for augmenting user experience.
    • We will explore the use of thermal haptics and electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to augment user experience.
  • Self-regulated learning on social media.
    • At the moment, we are exploring the self-regulated learning (SRL) strategy on Instagram. Through the studies, we will analyze and understand the user experience.
