Hello. I am Simon Nestler. I am a Computer Scientist as well as an Usability Professional.

I graduated at Technische Universität München (TUM) with a diploma in Computer Science. Furthermore, I made my Ph.D. in Human-Computer-Interaction at International Graduate School of Science and Engineering (IGSSE) on "Design, Implementation and Evaluation of User-Interfaces for life-threatening, time-critical and unstable Situations". My thesis was supervised by Prof. Gudrun Klinker, Ph.D. Afterwards I was employed at Intraworlds as an User Experience Engineer.

Since 2011 I am a Professor for Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI); from 2011 to 2019 at Hochschule Hamm-Lippstadt (HSHL), since 2019 at Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI).

 

Research Interests

Research on Human-Computer-Interaction, User Experience Design, Interactive Systems and Mental Workload.

I am researching on the application of HCI principles to safety-critical systems. I focus on people using interactive systems while being involved in mentally demanding tasks. During my previous research I designed and developed interactive systems for car drivers to support them ahead of critical situations. I developed mobile solutions for emergency teams to facilitate the triage processes during disasters. Furthermore, I developed collaborative multi-touch interfaces in order to prepare rescue teams for large scale crisis situations. I analysed the process of collaborative problem solving on multi-touch interfaces as well as on mobile devices. Additionally, I dealed with the usage of RFID devices for identifying and tracking patients in emergencies. I developed a heuristic for evaluating the usability of user-interfaces in lifethreating, time-critical and unstable situations. Moreover, I developed an concept for integrating information from social media in the crisis management processes. I developed mobile apps for guiding and supporting citizens during disasters. Last but not least, I developed a virtual reality system for evaluating interfaces for emergency situations.
