Stefan Schneegaß is assistant professor for computer science at the University of Duisburg-Essen since May 2017. He studied systems engineering at the University of Duisburg-Essen (2005-2011) and defended his doctoral dissertation at the University of Stuttgart in 2016. In his dissertation, he focused on enriching mobile interaction with garment-based wearable computing devices.
The overarching goal of his research is to help users interacting with computing devices und create easy to understand and easy to use interfaces for them. Thereby, he is researching novel interaction concepts for mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous computing systems. He is particularly interested in virtual and augmented reality, brain-computer interfaces, Internet of Things (IoT), implicit feedback through electrical muscle stimulation, and usable security.
