We do research from a psychological perspective on using recent technology (e.g., smartphones, wearables, virtual reality) to sense and influence individuals' health and well-being.


Wir beforschen unter psychologischem Blickwinkel den Einsatz moderner Computertechnik (z.B. Smartphones, Wearables, Virtuelle Realität) zur Erfassung und Verbesserung von Befinden und Gesundheit individueller Personen.
