As a “computer visualist” I combine technology and aesthetics, be it at work or in my free time. This is done by means of art, education, philosophy and psychology.
Computational visualistics, for example, transforms statistical data into visually appealing simulations or industrial or medical datasets into visual tools that make it easier to plan production or operations processes.
Computer graphics has long ceased to play a role in video games; Everywhere in industry and media, advertising, films or small appliances, the graphics come from the computer. Virtual and augmented reality applications merge content from the computer with reality.
My free time is determined by computer visualistics, e.g. photography, image editing, drawing and modeling. But also in the theater visual media are used and introduced into the game. The connection between these fundamentally different topics takes place through imagination and a pronounced curiosity about science.
My focus has evolved over time from the evolving side to the organization through the accomplished projects. As part of Scrum and Kanban teams, I got to know the agile implementation of projects. In 2019, I acquired my Professional Scrum Master (PSM I) and soon after my Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO I) Certificate.
During my time as a lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf, I was able to combine the technical areas of computer graphics and image processing with didactics and the implementation of projects by Scrum.
I worked on the following projects or developed them independently:
INTERACTIVE VISUALIZATION METEOROLOGICAL DATA IN 3D & VIRTUAL REALITY, University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf (2015-2019):
The Interactive Visualization of 3D Meteorological Data project is a summary of several smaller projects in the media department of the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences and was developed in cooperation with the ETH Zurich.
There, meteorologists are researching global weather phenomena, namely El Nino and the effects of the polar vortex on local weather. All of these phenomena are still difficult to predict, and better analysis tools are intended to help scientists with their research.
VISUALIZATION OF THE SSW 2018, University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf/ETH Zürich (2015-2019): Sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) events are driven by large waves and can affect the weather worldwide. With the help of new techniques in 3D computer graphics, Prof. Dr. Daniela Domeisen from ETH Zurich and Dipl.-Inform. Alexander Wollert developed alternative visualizations of fields in the stratosphere and in the troposphere to investigate new perspectives on El Niño, the sudden warming of the stratosphere and its effects on surface weather. The first visualization received an award at the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Image Competition
VIRTUAL CAMPUS, Hochschule Düsseldorf (2016):
Das innovative Projekt, welches innerhalb einer Lehrveranstaltung unter der Leitung der Professoren Sina Mostafawy und Thomas Bonse und dem wissenschaftlichen Mitarbeiter Alexander Wollert und Studenten entstanden ist, stellt ein interaktives Architekturmodell des HSD-Campus inklusive Menschen- und Wettersimulation dar. mehr Infos…
HOCCER, ART+COM, Cologne/Bonn (2013-2015): Hoccer is the safest messenger application for private communication. Transport and end-to-end encryption offer the sender and recipient the highest possible level of security for mobile data transfer. This, combined with Hoccer’s data economy, make Hoccer the safest messenger on the market. Hoccer doesn’t need your phone number or email address to create an account or add your friends. read more…
T-GALLERY, ART+COM, Cologne/Bonn (2013-2015): How do you make the future tangible? This is a common question when it comes to innovation. In the T-Gallery in Bonn, visitors will experience future usable new technologies and services directly in everyday situations and can thus understand from the perspective of the end user what connected life and work can look like in the future. read more…
INFOSTROM, Fraunhofer FIT, Sankt Augustin (2011-2013): Learning information infrastructures in crisis management using the example of power supply: The research project InfoStrom focused on technical support for inter-organizational cooperation and cross-organizational restoration work in the event of a power failure. All technologies, concepts and methods for the improvement of interorganisational communication, information and coordination processes were developed and evaluated in cooperation by the University of Siegen, Fraunhofer FIT, PSI Transcom, RWE, SAP Research and with the Rhein-Erft and Siegen-Wittgenstein circles. read more…
FRAPORT VISUALIZATION & SIMULATION (FraVIS) Fraport AG, Airport Frankfurt am Main (2010-2011): To visualize glare effects, in this example from possible photovoltaic systems on the Frankfurt Airport site, a simulation tool was designed that measures how severely which flight route is affected for every second of the year in different lighting conditions. This is represented numerically and graphically. read more…
MedVIS Medical Visualization, University of Koblenz/Military Central Hospital Koblenz (2010): Data sets from CTs and MRTs provided by the BWZK were displayed three-dimensionally by software from the MedVIS project group and upgraded using interactive transfer functions so that dedicated regions were visualized exclusively and in color. read more…
