The research area of Interaction Lab (iLab) is the study, design, and evaluation of human interaction with digital products, systems, and devices, with a focus on positive pragmatic and hedonic experiences.
The main theoretical foundations used in research are rooted in cognitive science, primarily in embodied, situated and distributed theories of cognition in natural and artificial cognitive systems.
Our primary competence areas are:
- Interaction and cognition
- Human-computer interaction and user experience design
- Game development
A variety of methodological approaches are applied in the projects, such as, ethnographically inspired field studies, user-centered evaluations, lab-based experiments, cognitive modeling, design science, and action research.
