As of September 2014, Carsten Röcker is a professor at the University of Applied Sciences Ostwestfalen-Lippe (OWL) and the Fraunhofer Application Center Industrial Automation (IOSB-INA) in Lemgo.

Until joining OWL, Carsten was a postdoctoral researcher at the Media Computing Group, working in the HumTec Human-Technology Interaction center, a newly established project house established as part of the DFG-funded Excellence University program of RWTH Aachen University. He joined RWTH Aachen in December 2008, and worked with an interdisciplinary team on ubiquitous computing solutions for eHealth scenarios.

Previously, Carsten was a DFG-funded visiting PostDoc at the Media Computing Group, focusing on the evaluation of user requirements for smart work environments. Before joining RWTH Aachen University. he was a PostDoc at the Distributed Cognition and HCI Laboratory at the University of California in San Diego. From 2000 to 2006 he worked as a research associate at the Fraunhofer Integrated Publication and Information Systems Institute (IPSI) in Darmstadt. During that time he was involved in several projects designing novel information and communication technologies for intelligent home and office environments. He has an interdisciplinary background with academic degrees in the areas of computer science (PhD), psychology (PhD), electrical engineering (Master) and management (Master).
