Former Doctoral Researcher in the Educational Technologies at DIPF
Information Center for Education

Daniel graduated with M.Sc. in Computer Science in 2015. After that, he worked as a software developer before joining the EduTec team at the end of 2017. During his time at DIPF he developed and researched tools that support self-regulated learning. Beyond that, he was interested in Virtual Reality and the way that physiological parameters affect learning. Daniel successfully defended his PhD thesis on technological responses to distracting media multitasking in digital learning environments in December 2023.
