Born and raised in Germany, I hold a B.A. in Media Studies from Eberhard Karls University in Tuebingen and an M.A. in Communications from Berlin University of the Arts. From early on, I developed a deep interest in digital artifacts, most notably video and film. I have worked as a video journalist and cameraman on projects in Germany, France, India, and the US.
As a versatile digital toolmaker, my goal is to explore the benefits of code visualization, using my skills in digital creation. I am deeply fascinated by automated visualization and visualized automation (i.e., code).
I am a PhD Student in Information Science at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana (USA). My research focuses on motion-based media, code, and how the two are related. My PhD project will devote itself to exploring how our knowledge of information visualization can be used to enhance a user's experience while writing code. My method of choice is designing & prototyping.
Video has been an integral part of my academic career so far. I have worked as video journalist for various clients inside and outside academia. My work took me to many places around the world, and with my PhD in progress, I am still schooling my digital eye. Here is a small sample of my work in film, and if possible, please enjoy it in HD via Vimeo in the link below.
As photography transitions from treasured hobby into part of my professional life, I am proud to include it in my digital portfolio.
