I hold a BSc and MSc in computer science and media, having studied at the Vienna Technical University, University of Applied Arts Vienna and Middlesex University London.
From 2007 to 2011 I worked with the Ars Electronica Futurelab Research and Innovation Group focusing on the intersection of art and technology: mostly designing and realizing interactive exhibits and exhibitions and working on research and development projects in the field of Human-Computer-Interaction and Experience Design. Since 2009 I was teaching at the University of Art and Industrial Design Linz and am currently a PhD student at the Vienna Technical University at the Institute for Design and Assessment of Technology. In my current work I focus on the integration of current technological development into the fields of art and craft as well as DIY culture and how this can be achieved in an aesthetic and personal fulfilling way. I’m active in the international FabLab community and board member of the Austrian Society for Innovative Computer Science.
My personal as well as contracted work so far has been part of and published at international festivals and conferences such as IDC, FutureEverything, Mobile HCI, Re-thinking technology in museums and Ars Electronica.
Always looking for new challenges, I'm interested in working and collaborating on projects! Fields of interest include digital fabrication/ manufacture, wearable technologies, interactive exhibitions, educational aspects, technological literacy and creative use.
