Frauenberger Portrait

Chris Frauenberger is full professor for HCI. He researches and designs interactive digital technology in a wide range of contexts with often with groups who are marginalised in mainstream innovation landscapes (e.g. autistic children, the elderly). He is committed to participatory and critical design practices and sees design as his main mode of scientific inquiry. Theoretically, he builds on new philosophical perspectives to conceptualise our increasingly entangled relationships with technology, unearthing the ethical, moral, epistemological and ontological implications for designing technological futures.
