Anke Hirsch

Bachelor’s degree in psychology

I study M.Sc. Psychology. I wrote my bachelor’s thesis in this research group about “The impact of room colour and light in a job interview induced in a virtual environment”. That’s were I became curious of virtual characters and their personality. Furthermore I am interested in emotions, how they develop, and how they influence our behaviour were always part of my research interest.

 

 


Mirella Scholtes

Bachelor’s degree in psychology

I study M.Sc. Psychology and B.Sc. Media Informatics concurrently.

My research in this group focusses on oberservable cues of emotion and emotion regulation. I’m responsible for design, conduction and analysis of studies in the projects EmpaT and Eliza.

 

 

Bernhard Hilpert

Bachelor’s degree in psychology

I study M.Sc Psychology and I have always been curious about areas in which our psychological models can be applied in a practical context. The Affective Computing Group is a particularly interesting place for this proposition, as it addresses the implementation of Emotional Models into a Computer Science Context and their influence on their interaction with people. As there are still many open research questions in both disciplines it gives me the chance to experience and contribute to psychological as well as interdisciplinary research and praxis.

My contribution focusses on the implementation, testing and evaluation of Emotional Models in user studies in the projects EmpaT and DEEP.
