Born 1957 in Munich, Germany
• Diplom-Psychologe, Dr. phil./PH.D.
• Since 1991 owner of the private firm and research institute mensch-verkehr-umwelt (mvu), Institute for Applied Psychology. mvu aims at advancing the transfer of psychological knowledge, methods and expertise into practice. By an integrated view of man, technology and environment, innovative solutions in research, consulting and training are developed. Fields of application are road traffic and work sites.
• Main activities in road traffic are driving task analysis procedures, development of error counting methods and traffic conflicts methods for in-car observation, field studies on the safety effects of new in-vehicle devices, work on driver information needs, motives and determinants of mobility, traffic mode choice, man-environment-interaction, etc.
• A special focus is directed on so-called “problem groups” in road traffic: children, young and old traffic participants. Therefore in 2005 establishment of a “Working group: Age-adequate Mobility”.
• Since 2008 additonal task as Head of the Medico-Psychological-Technical Superior Examination Center (MPTO) at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.
• Road traffic safety
• Human Factors Engineering
• New in-vehicle devices
