Who I am

I studied media studies in Trier (Germany) and Lyon (France) and completed my Ph.D. in human-computer interaction in 2021. I have several years of experience in user research and research of media consumption, digital learning media, and the design of digital products and services.

I am author of books and numerous professional articles on various aspects of digitalization. I love to share my knowledge in lectures, workshops, and seminars and continue to write about the digital transformation as an author. I have been working as project manager in agencies, companies and public institutions for several years, specialising on the conception, design, development and strategy of digital products.
