Dr. Frauke Mörike


Research & Teaching Fellow

As post-doctoral fellow I am working on several research projects and conducting ethnographic fieldwork on-site within work systems. As part of the M.Sc. “Human Factors” curriculum I am teaching relevant methods and theories from social sciences for the studies of work systems and supervise students for their master thesis.


With a background rooting in Anthropology and Business Information Systems Engineering I see the openness for different disciplinary and praxis-oriented perspectives as fundamentally relevant for my work.

Fields of interest:

  • Digitalisation and changes of working concepts
  • Hybrid Work and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)
  • Misunderstandings and Workarounds in der Work environment
  • Applied Design Anthropology for Human Factors Research
