I work as a researcher at the Design Research Lab, based at Berlin University of the Arts, and at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI).
I completed a degree in Textile and Surface Design at Berlin Weissensee School of Art, and an MA in Textile Futures at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. I have just finished my PhD at the Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) for Media and Arts Technology at Queen Mary University of London, in which I designed and analysed three-dimensional textile metamaterials.
My work focuses on engineering design methods and fabrication techniques for electronic textiles, combining crafts with novel manufacturing technologies. My aim is to initiate innovation in textile design by repurposing scientific methods and procedures, and transforming them into functional and poetic artefacts.
