Hi, I'm Tamara!
I love data visualization and innovative interaction design and combining these two things into a beautiful and creative ensemble. Over the last years, I’ve gathered plenty of experiences in both of these areas separately and have explored their combination through various projects.

What you should know about me
What I've done so far
In 2010, I moved to Dresden to pursue a degree in Media Computer Science and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree from Technische Universität Dresden. Especially during my Master’s studies, I focused more and more on Human-Computer Interaction and Information Visualization besides Computer Graphics. During this time, I was a research intern supervised by Sheelagh Carpendale at the Innovis Group at the University of Calgary, Canada. In 2018, I defended my Master’s thesis which was supervised by Prof. Raimund Dachselt and started working at his lab in March 2019.
After 1 1/2 years of research in interdisciplinary projects, amazing collaborators, and my personal highlight, a research paper at the IEEE VIS conference, I decided to move to Berlin to become an Information Designer at Destatis, the Federal Statistical Office of Germany. For one year, I created visualizations of international statistics and wrote accompanying articles which were distributed on social media and the official Destatis website. I showcase some of my creations here.
And if you’ve read this far, I’ll tell you the most important things about me: I love cooking and trying out new food, I recently got a blue belt in kickboxing, and I have a little feline friend which means I talk way too much about her and spend too much time taking cute cat photos.
If you’d like to get to know me and are interested in chatting with me, please reach out!
