Hello there, I'm Tamara.

I’m an Information Designer and Web Developer based in Berlin.

I am passionate about cleverly designed data visualizations and innovative interaction design.

I’ve designed, created, and researched visualizations and interactive interfaces for different technologies including mobile devices, wall-sized interactive displays, and Augmented Reality for the past 7 years.

Check out some of my projects below, find out more about me, and don’t hesitate to reach out.

Selected Projects

My work at Destatis, the Federal Statistical Office of Germany, in Berlin revolves around international and European statistical data and communicating them. This means I research relevant data, create suitable static or dynamic visualizations, and write accompanying articles.

PARVIS (Personal Augmented Reality for Information Visualization on Large Interactive Displays) combines large interactive displays and personal head-mounted Augmented Reality (AR) for information visualization to support data exploration and analysis.

In my Master’s thesis "Exploring Selection Management and Brushing and Linking for Mobile Cross-Device Interaction", I developed a concept and prototype for combining multiple mobile devices to explore information visualizations. I focused on how to create, manage, and interact with these selections in mobile multi-device environments.

Flexible Trees allow for creating tree visualizations to fit a desired shape by using sketch-based interaction. It offers a simple way of generating tree layouts for infographic purposes by adding a meaningful shape to a tree visualization.

The goal of this project was to develop a set of multi-touch interaction techniques for star plot visualizations and ideally to incorporate additional data into a single star plot.

Through using mobile Augmented Reality, this transparent and foldable device supports travellers and tourists in their everyday tasks. It helps with to learning about a place on the go, become familiar with it, and even getting to know the language.
