Research Topics:

- Usability & User Experience
- Psychophysiology / Affective Computing
- (Mobile) Human Computer Interaction
- Quality assessment


Robert Schleicher joined the Telekom Innovation Laboratories as a senior research scientist in November 2006. He received his diploma in psychology in 2003 (University of Bonn) and had been working at the department of clinical psychology at the University of Cologne, workgroup biological psychology, since then. From summer 2005 to 2006 he was additionally employed at the department of clinical and applied psychology at the University of Bonn where he held classes in biological psychology and maintained the psychophysiological lab. In 2008, he finished his PhD thesis on psychophysiology, eye movements and emotions at the University of Cologne.
