Dr Christian Vogler is a trained psychologist who has recognized early on in his academic career that the most exciting discoveries of our time are increasingly being made at the interface of different scientific disciplines. Already during his studies, he devoted himself to linking psychological research and genetics in order to investigate the molecular foundations of human behaviour. He pursued a PhD in molecular neurosciences, which led him to enjoy the adventures and possibilities of big data analysis. While bringing together molecular biology, genomic data, brain imaging and human behaviour, he saw a clear need to improve and facilitate psychological assessment to effectively marry big data science and psychology: mental health diagnostics can substantially benefit from the possibility to do large-scale automatic psychological testing. Realizing that games provide an optimal toolkit to measure all kinds of human behaviour in an automatic, scalable and even enjoyable way, he set out to develop videogames that serve as “next generation” psychological instruments. This approach holds the key to replace the high levels of subjectivity in mental health diagnostics with objective markers of cognitive performance, paving the way for efficient outpatient monitoring and reliable digital biomarkers for drug efficacy measurements in mental health and cognitive safety assessment in clinical trials. When he isn’t trying hard to start revolutions or inventing new games, he enjoys the mountains or does something allegedly useful with tools and wood to impress his wife with his achievements in craftsmanship.
