About Me

I'm a User Experience Designer and Researcher from Munich, specializing in information visualization. During my Ph.D. in Computational Media Design at the InnoVis Group, I have explored how visualization can support personal expression and reflection. This allowed me to gain experience in both designing and developing user friendly interfaces and visualizations. I am further fluent in user research methods with a focus on qualitative studies. As an experienced public speaker and love sharing ideas with others and have published and presented my work at top-tier venues around the world. In my free time I do pottery and love everything that has to do with crafting. For more information, please contact me! I am happy to chat!
