I strive for solutions: I love to imagine, design, realize and improve software projects. I have a variety of experience in Front- and Backend, Mobile and Physical Computing - and I am eager to wrap my head around the next experience.
Creative, Open Mind
I strive for innovation: I love to do creative work, think about what might be the next step and i am a design thinking enthusiast. No matter wether alone or in the team: Creating something really new is awesome!
Since I joined Prof. Baudisch's chair for human computer interaction I mainly worked on projects about improving and inventing new fabrication techniques. See my university projects below (more are in the pipeline, e.g. my master thesis).
I am constantly seeking to collect drops from the ocean of knowledge. That's why I love the concept of open knowledge and love to share knowledge with other people and learn from them.
Catching a moment in a picture and playing with light and composition allows me to show the world how I see it and express some ideas (flickr).
I love to keep moving, so I do athletics (including trainer license), windsurfing, slackline and fun sports with friends.
TRUSSFAB: FABRICATING STURDY LARGE-SCALE STRUCTURES ON DESKTOP 3D PRINTERS
In Proceedings of CHI '17 (Full Paper).
TrussFab is an integrated end-to-end system that allows users to fabricate large scale structures that are sturdy enough to carry human weight. TrussFab achieves the large scale by complementing 3D print with plastic bottles. Unlike previous systems that stacked bottles as if they were “bricks”, TrussFab considers them as beams and uses them to form structurally sound node link structures based on closed triangles, also known as trusses. TrussFab embodies the required engineering knowledge, allowing non-engineers to design such structures. [...]
LASERSTACKER: FABRICATING 3D OBJECTS BY LASER CUTTING AND WELDING
In Proceedings of UIST '15 (Full Paper).
The key idea of LaserStacking is to use the laser cutter to not only cut but also to weld. Users place not one acrylic sheet, but a stack of acrylic sheets into their cutter. In a single process, LaserStacker cuts each individual layer to shape (through all layers above it), welds layers by melting material at their interface, and heals undesired cuts in higher layers. When users take out the object from the laser cutter, it is already assembled. [...]
My role: I implemented the LaserStacker Ruby-Plugin on top of the 3D editor SketchUp. It enables the user to model an object that complies with the conditions of the LaserStacker idea. After the user finished modelling, the commands are exported for the laser cutter.
