Fraunhofer IGD Rostock (

Christian is researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics in Rostock, Germany. He is interested in Human-Computer Interaction in general and Affective Computing in particular. His current focus is on affective technologies like affect sensing and detection, and the design of affective systems. Christian beliefs that interaction is inherently affective, i.e. related to a human\'s emotional state and that hence emotional attitudes need to be considered for a successfull and satisfying interaction.
