Personal profile

Research profile

Bastian Pfleging is Assistant Professor for Design Research on Systems, Products, and Related Services for Future Everyday Mobility in the Future Everyday cluster. He also co-leads the squad on Adaptive Mobility. With a background in computer science, his expertise is in the fields of human-computer interaction, ubiquitous systems, multimodal interaction, natural user interfaces, and specifically automotive user interfaces. His research interests especially include novel concepts for non-driving-related activities in the car and the user experience of vehicles in the transition to full automation. Bastian Pfleging is steering committee member of the AutomotiveUI conference series and served the scientific community in different chair roles at various conferences such as CHI ‘19 (associate chair, subcommittee on user experience and usability), PerDis’19 (demo chair), Mensch und Computer ’19 (demo chair), UIST ’18 (treasurer), AutomotiveUI ’17 (program chair), AutomotiveUI ’15 and 16’ (work-in-progress and interactive demo chair). He is also member in program committees of HCI-related scientific conferences and serves as a reviewer and guest editor for various conferences, journals, and magazines.

Academic background

Bastian Pfleging studied Computer Science at TU Dortmund, Germany. In 2009, he started as a researcher at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany. From 2010 to 2011, he was a visiting researcher at the BMW Technology Office in Palo Alto/Mountain View, California. In 2011 he continued his research at the University of Stuttgart, where he also defended his PhD thesis on the topic of “Automotive User Interfaces for the Support of Non-Driving-Related Activities” under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Albrecht Schmidt. Since July 2015 he was a postdoctoral researcher at the chair for Human-Machine Interaction at LMU Munich, Germany. For the summer term 2018, he additionally was a deputy professor for human-computer interaction at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. In 2018, he joined the Department for Industrial Design of Eindhoven University of Technology.
