Personal profile

Research profile

Günter is Assistant Professor in the Systemic Change Cluster in the Department of Industrial Design. His research interests lie at the intersection of games user research, data analytics, and information visualization. His work particularly centers on understanding player behavior in games and on researching methods to explore and communicate the collected data to derive actionable insights for game design and development. As part of this, he is working on data visualizations to support the analysis of the increasingly large-scale player behavioral datasets used in game analytics. Günter frequently serves on the program committee of games, visualization, and human-computer interaction related conferences. He is actively involved in the organization of academic games conferences such as CHI PLAY for which he serves as program chair in 2019. His research has been published in international journals and conference proceedings, such as CHI, CHI PLAY, FDG, Computers & Graphics, and Entertainment Computing.
