Media and Engineering Psychology: We aim to contribute to a better understanding of human thoughts, feelings, and actions before, during, and after media (technology) use. Psychological aspects loom large in engineering sciences as well as in all fields of communication sciences. 

Media Design: We work on designing human-centered media and information technology products, e.g. websites, electronic program guides, service robots or assistance and entertainment systems in vehicles.

Special Expertise: We apply social scientific research methods and evaluation methods in research and practice projects and convey them in teaching. In media research we often deal with youth and therefore also with questions of Media Pedagogy. Another work area of the research group is Sexuality Research and Gender Studies, especially on the interface to media. 

We look forward to working with you!
