Julian is an assistant professor in the Interaction/Multimedia group. His current research in human-computer interaction contributes to several focus areas. In summary, his overall research goal is to contribute to the theoretical understanding and the design and implementation of interactive systems that provide enjoyable, meaningful, and healthy experiences for users. This involves assessing and modeling user states to predict when experiences go awry, building and leveraging insights from games user and player experience research as a foundation for a holistic understanding of enjoyable and meaningful digital experiences, implementing and validating novel interaction concepts for solving problems inherent to novel technology and to enable suitable and enjoyable experiences, and studying social interactions between users to address the human factors of negative experiences, such as toxicity. His research also investigates how interactive systems can help mitigate their negative outcomes in adaptivity and intervention approaches.
