About me

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

I am a computer scientist and Professor of Interaction Design and User Experience in the Institute for Multimedia and Interactive Systems at the University of Lübeck in Germany.

I am particularly interested in human-computer interaction (HCI) and human-data interaction (HDI). Therefore, my team designs, implements, and studies novel ubiquitous and collaborative technologies for exploring, visualizing, and making sense of complex data sets and models.

Before joining the University of Lübeck in Summer 2020, I was a tenured “Fachhochschul-Professor” and head of the research group HIVE (Human Interfaces & Virtual Environments) at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Hagenberg Campus  between 2015-2020.

In 2013 & 2014, 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).
