Alexander Mirnig is a Research Fellow at the Center for Human-Computer Interaction, focusing on knowledge transfer, design patterns, and theory of definitions in HCI. He holds a Master’s Degree in Analytic Philosophy from the University of Salzburg and is currently working on his PhD in HCI. He has a background in Philosophy of Science, Epistemology, Ethics, and Neuroscience. Alexander was involved in several international research projects and has worked on system-user trust and security feedback, automotive driver space design patterns, user experience definitions, and ethical aspects in practical science. In his PhD thesis, he is currently exploring the potential of patterns as a general knowledge transfer tool for both science and industry.
