Research Interest



My name is Moritz Langner. I am a doctoral researcher at ISSD and part of the Eye-based Interactive Systems team. My research focuses on the intersection of Information Systems (IS) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I investigate the design and development of next generation user interfaces using eye tracking technology to improve productivity & well-being. In particular, I am interested in user modeling and building user-adaptive systems that are enabled by eye-trackers on desktop stations.

Sounds interesting? Do you want to discuss research, or are you a student interested in the topic and looking for a thesis supervisor? Feel free to contact me anytime.

My colleague Peyman Toreini and I recently explained our research in a video produced by the ZKM for the project Digilog@BW
