Welcome to my homepage. I am Susanne Boll and I am a Professor of Media Informatics and Multimedia Systems in the Department of Computing Science at the University of Oldenburg, in Germany. I am also a member of the executive board of the OFFIS–Institute for Information Technology in Oldenburg, an associated research institute of the University of Oldenburg. OFFIS belongs to the top 5% out of 1200 non-university research institutes in Germany. Within OFFIS, I act as the scientific head of many international and national research projects in the field of intelligent user interfaces and initiated the Human–Machine-Interaction Competence Center which I oversee as a scientific head.
My research interests lie in the field of multimedia and intelligent user interfaces. I teach Interactive Systems and Interactive Multimedia in the Bachelor Programme in Computer Science and offer lectures and practical lab courses in HCI, Wearable Computing and Digital Fabrication in the Master Programme in Computer Science. Since recently I am also a co-founder of the new Master Programme in Computer Science „Engineering Socio-Technical Systems“. I am leading several national and international scientific projects with strong cooperation with research experts world wide. I head one of the few leading groups in Europe that works on mobile and ambient user interfaces exploring different novel modalities such as visual, auditory and tactile in pervasive displays. We strongly embed our research in the fields of next generation technology and health and save automated transportation as a major application domains. I am very proud to work with wonderful people in Oldenburg that make our research visions happen.
