Constanze Weiß is a former student assistant. At the chair she was particularly concerned with the future of work in terms of digitalization and mechanization.

During her studies she focused on the sociology of technology and organisation, innovation research as well as qualitative and quantitative methods. She wrote her master's thesis on the prerequisites for successfully implementing technical innovations in human-technology interaction in organizations.

Currently she is working at the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP in the field of psychoacoustics and cognitive ergonomics. There she is researching, especially by means of test person studies in the laboratory and in the field as well as surveys, the connections and interactions between parameters of building physics (acoustics, lighting, climate, air quality), mental performance and human perception of comfort. The aim is the user-related optimisation of environmental conditions, such as working conditions in the office.
