Barbara Göbl received her master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Vienna in 2016. Her thesis covered the development and application of Serious Games in anxiety therapy for children.

She will provide input on all technical aspects regarding the project.
Supported by a DOC-team scholarship, she will coordinate development and deployment of the mobile game, including the participatory design process in close collaboration with her colleagues.
