Some of my highlights

The projects I am most proud of are those where I am able to bridge the gap between the needs of the client and her business and the creative and technical development team to deliver the best solution digital technology offers. I love the challenge and interaction with interdisciplinary teams to create the best solutions for the right context.

I am very interested in cognitive science, the interdisciplinary research about the human mind and its processes. How do we learn? How does our brain work? What is the influence of language, culture? Are we our brains? The human brain and body is an amazing complex and interesting mechanism.

As an MA in media studies I was always interested in the effect of media on people. We are only at the beginning to understand how digital media influences our behavior. Or the other way around: How we can influence human behavior by using digital media. And I believe it’s not just algorithms that will do the trick.

Which brings me to my other field of interest. I love to play classical music. Never underestimate the influence of music on our brain. 😉
