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.
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.
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.
