Research expertise

In my research, I investigate how the design of information systems can influence the cognitive and affective processes of human users and how this in turn effects their decision making and behavior. My research interests include: biofeedback, decision making, electronic markets, emotion regulation, gamification, NeuroIS, serious games, and the sharing economy.

Teaching expertise

In my teaching, it is my goal to provide students with an inspiring learning environment that motivates to learn and in which students can see the potential business applications of information systems in practice. Therefore, I follow an applied IT approach by (i) interactively discussing concrete cases of how IT works in a business environment, (ii) letting students interact with business IT artefacts, and (iii) demonstrating how different business areas can benefit from the advances in IT. The topics of my courses include: business analysis, design of electronic markets, design of lab and field experiments, human-computer interaction, NeuroIS and statistical data analysis.
