Cognitive and Digital Science Lab (CoDiS Lab)

The CoDiS Lab focuses on interdisciplinary research by connecting and applying computer science with cognitive psychology. The main research areas of CoDiS include (a) digital literacy development, (b) human and computational decision making, and (c) human-centred system design and evaluation. These thematic areas are based on expertise and research in computer science focusing on extended reality technologies, social and engaging media, and data and information analytics. Furthermore, they incorporate know-how and research on human factors, cognition, and motivation from cognitive psychology. Within its main research areas the CoDiS Lab team performs and implements work on theoretical and cognitive models, conceptual approaches, empirical studies, software applications, and evaluation.
