Bernhard Maurer has a background in game design and development and holds a Master’s Degree in Multi Media Technology from the University of Applied Sciences, Salzburg. Since he joined the center in 2013 he was involved in design and research activities in the industrial and automotive domain.

His PhD research explores embodied interaction as a stance towards game design and investigates physical and social context qualities as a design material for digital play. His design and research activities are driven by questioning established notion of gameplay towards creating playful interactive systems that go beyond purely digital and physical play.
