Welcome to the webpage of the human-computer interaction (HCI) research group at the University of St. Gallen. We design, develop and evaluate mobile and ubiquitous user interfaces that demonstrably enhance users’ lives. Our research mission is to fit human and technological needs and empower users when using novel interfaces. We want to gain a deeper understanding of the interplay between rapidly advancing technologies and how digital interfaces can empower users in their rich set of activities. We focus on a broad range of use cases from geographic information science, public health, and medical contexts, as well as extreme conditions such as space missions. We love to work in interdisciplinary teams to create novel insights. For doing so, we use rigorous methods from AI, computer graphics and cognitive psychology and have a commitment to both theoretical and practice-based inquiry, and we have a particular interest in the application of user-centred design methodologies as well as mixed methods approaches. Prof. Dr. Johannes Schöning leads the group.
