Bernd Ploderer I am a Lecturer in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and Honorary Fellow at the University of Melbourne.

My research focuses on Human-Computer Interaction for Healthy Living. I design, develop, and evaluate technology to empower people through personal health data and through interactions with peers and health professionals. I explored this topic in various contexts, including bodybuilding, quitting smoking, and running. In my current work I design mobile and wearable technology to support healthy sleep habits, wound management, and rehabilitation after a stroke.
