Dr Frauke Behrendt is a Principal Lecturer in Media, let the RCUK-funded ‘Smart e-bikes’ research project and the research on the NetPark project. Her research contributes to the understanding of both the design process and the user experience of emerging/innovative mobile and digital technologies. Her findings have impact in the areas of media, mobility, sustainability, interaction design, sound studies, intelligent transport and smart cities. Behrendt's results and insights translate into policy, design and teaching. Dr Behrendt is course leader for Environment and Media Studies BA (Hons) and teaches on the MA 'Creative Media' and the 'Media, Insustry & Innovation' and 'Media Studies' BAs. She is on the steering committee of the Centre for Research in Spatial, Environmental & Cultural Politics, and leads its theme ‘Environmental futures, communication & sustainability’. Dr Behrendt was on the on the Steering Committee of the EU COST Action on Sonic Interaction Design.
