Christian is an assistant professor (University of Bamberg). In his research, he studies topics such as IS usage, technostress and IT personnel. Among others, he has shown that--next to IS use in organizations--also the use of private IS (e.g. Facebook) is stressful and, finally, let individuals discontinue the use of the IT, even though switching from use to non-use stresses the individual.
In current research projects, he studies how personality traits influence technostress and how further aspects within the environment of an individual causes perceptions of technostress. In those research projects, he collects subjective and objective data and follows different methodological approaches, such as mixed-methods, quantitative or qualitative studies.
