My current research focuses on human augmentation to enhance our capabilities. In order to create a design framework for developers, designers and future users, I explore human augmentation in different domains such as sports, health, safety & security, and engineering. My work includes the evaluation of human factors on acceptance, engagement and experience of human augmentation. To research how to design engaging and effective training environments in which humans can be prepared for complex real-life situations, superhuman sports that motivate people to exercise by providing novel experiences and capabilities, or virtual co-location environments in which individuals can virtually be at any place in the world and coordinate their activities with others and exchange their experiences, I combine virtual and augmented reality with applied games.The above research incorporates results from my earlier work on intelligent and context-adaptive collaboration support, collaborative storytelling for knowledge elicitation and decision-making, and design patterns for computer-mediated interaction.
