I currently work in the development of new design concepts for robotics applications in different areas. Among the areas in which I had involvement are the construction industry, healthcare, drones, airport logistics and assembly lines. These robots are operated in many cases in cooperation with humans, and for this reason user studies using Experience Prototypes are carried out during the development phase in order to study the users’ interaction and experience with the designs. Additionally, I am currently involved in tasks in the fields of Interaction Design, User-Centered-Design/UX Design, Industrial Design, Prototyping, Graphic Design, as well as Project Leading. This portfolio contains some of my personal and academic work. For work samples in professional projects, please contact me.
