Dr Fridolin Wild is a Senior Research Fellow, leading the Performance Augmentation Lab (PAL) of Oxford Brookes University. With the research and development of the lab, Fridolin seeks to close the dissociative gap between abstract knowledge and its practical application, researching radically new forms of linking directly from knowing something ‘in principle’ to applying that knowledge ‘in practice’ and speeding its refinement and integration into polished performance.
Fridolin is leading numerous EU, European Space Agency, and nationally funded research projects, including WEKIT, TCBL, ARPASS, Tellme, TELmap, cRunch, Stellar, Role, LTfLL, iCamp, and Prolearn. Fridolin is the voted treasurer of the European Association of Technology Enhanced Learning (EATEL) and leads its Special Interest Group on Wearable-Enhanced Learning (SIG WELL). He chairs the working group on Augmented Reality Learning Experience Models (ARLEM) of the IEEE Standards Association as well as the Natural Language Processing task view of the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).
Previously, Fridolin was with the Knowledge Media Institute of the Open University from 2009 to 2016, last in his role as a Research Fellow. Before, Fridolin worked as a researcher at the Vienna University of Economics and Business in Austria from 2004 to 2009. He studied at the University of Regensburg, Germany, with extra-murals at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and the University of Hildesheim.
