Sebastian Möller, Prof. Dr.-Ing.
Head of Quality and Usability Lab at TU Berlin and of the Research Department Language Technology at DFKI
Sebastian Möller studied electrical engineering at the universities of Bochum (Germany), Orléans (France) and Bologna (Italy). From 1994 to 2005, he held the position of a scientific researcher at Ruhr-University Bochum and worked on speech signal processing, speech technology, communication acoustics, as well as on speech communication quality aspects. From 2005 to 2015, he worked at Telekom Innovation Laboratories, an An-Institut of TU Berlin. He was appointed Full Professor for the subject "Quality and Usability" at TU Berlin in April 2007, and he also leads the research department "Speech and Language Technology" at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, DFKI, as a Scientific Director since 2017. His research interests focus on the Quality of Experience (QoE) and the User Experience (UX) related to information and communication technologies, including speech-based and multimodal systems, as well as the security and privacy experienced by users (Usable Security and Privacy). In this area, he tries to understand rationales for user perception and behavior, and to formalize them into models which are able to predict judgment and behavioral processes.
