Welcome!

My name is Hans-Christian Jetter but I usually just go by Christian.

I am a computer scientist and Professor of User Experience and Interaction Design in the Department of Software Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria (or “FH Upper Austria”). My position is very similar to that of an Associate Professor in the US or Senior Lecturer in the UK.

My lab is located on my university’s campus in Hagenberg, a small town very close to the city of Linz. Therefore many people also refer to my university as “FH Hagenberg”.

As a computer scientist, I am interested in research on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Information Visualization (InfoVis), Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp), Interaction Design (IxD), and Cognitive Science.

I also teach HCI, IxD, InfoVis, Usability Engineering, UI programming, and research methods to students in the Master degree program Human-Centered Computing and in the Bachelor and Master degree programs Software Engineering and Communication and Knowledge Media.

Before becoming a professor, I was a research associate and postdoc at University College London (UCL) in the Intel Collaborative Research Institute on Sustainable Connected Cities (ICRI). I also worked as research visitor and intern at Microsoft Research Cambridge.

I hold a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Information Engineering from the Human-Computer Interaction Group of the University of Konstanz in Germany where I also received my PhD in Computer Science in 2013 (summa cum laude).
