Dr. Anke Dittmar received her diploma in computer science and her PhD degree on task modeling. She has been a long-time educator in software engineering, human-computer interaction, and interaction design. Her research interests include user centered design methods, design representations (e.g., user interface specifications, task models, personas, and scenarios), collaborative design activities, and empirical studies of artefact use. She is the current president of the European Association on Cognitive Ergonomics (EACE).
