I am a Berlin-based UX Designer and Researcher with a background in design research, computer science and media arts. My work brings together technology, design and research to push design closer to societal needs.
I explore the field of Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI) from a fundamentally people-centered perspective. An early involvement of users in the design process is key to all projects I work on.
Linking the worlds of design and technology, I experiment with future technologies bringing them to life through interactive, functional prototypes. My practice involves the iterative design and development of hardware and software prototypes across different fields, ranging from hybrid publishing, the future of learning, disability-inspired interaction design, design for an ageing society and embodied interaction.
