Research interests

  • Trust in automation:
    o    Dynamic trust processes in human-machine interaction
    o    Psychological variables influencing perception, evaluation and interaction with technical systems
    o    Emphasis on the role of user personality
  • Human-robot interaction:
    o    Person- and system-related influences on the interaction with (service) robots
    o    Human-centered design processes in human-robot interaction
  • Driver-vehicle cooperation: Psychological investigation of user perception and decision making as well as human-centered design of highly automated vehicles
  • Anthropomorphism: Design and consequences of human-like design of automated systems
