I recently graduated with a MSc. in Design for Interaction at TU Delft. I have 1 1/2 years work experience in highly multidisciplinary teams at Fraunhofer Institute and Mercedes-Benz AG and Festo Didactic. Currently I am working as scientific researcher in a transdiciplinary team for technology interventions in hospitals at the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam. In addition to my study I explored research, technology and design in a half-year scholarship at Fraunhofer Institute, as Honorous Master Student and as B-Part Fellow. Both, educational and work experience includes theoretical and practical skills in qualitative research within the field of engineering. Holding studies in Germany, Sweden, and the Netherlands, I have developed a great curiosity to learn in a multicultural environment, passionate to investigate complex socio-technical problems and search for solutions.
