Bernd PlodererI am a Senior Lecturer at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) where I lead the Digital Wellbeing Lab. My research contributes to the areas of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Health Informatics. I investigate how technology can support people to stay healthy and well in a particular context. I am particularly interested in self-tracking through mobile and wearable technologies, and how these technologies are used in real-word contexts, such as quitting smoking, healthy sleep habits, rehabilitation after a stroke, and diabetic foot care. My work combines qualitative research and co-design techniques to study self-tracking and self-care, to create technology prototypes, and to evaluate the impact of new technologies.

Currently, I am involved in the following projects:

Student research opportunities: I am  seeking highly-motivated students to work with me on the above projects.
