Hi! I'm Alina, a Design Researcher & Interaction Designer
I’m passionate about products and services for social & environmental impact, and I’m curious about the influence of design on the human mind.
Currently, I'm supporting the chair of settlement structure of TUM School of Engineering and Design.
While following my long term goal to follow an inclusive human-centered research approach, developing holistic environmentally friendly strategies and creating delightful designs at the intersection of the virtual and physcial world.
In my bachelor's at the
University of Applied Sciences Munich,
I developed a broad range of skills from visual design, motion design, interaction design, web design, and product design.
During my internship at
Blackspace Design Studio,
I gained experience in spatial and exhibition design.
I deepened my knowledge in Experience Design, Service Design, and Design Research in a six-month internship and the development of my
bachelor thesis project.
During my time at
FROLIC studio, a small product design studio in Amsterdam, focussing on social and environmental impact, I further developed my knowledge in Design Research and Interaction Design.
At the moment, I'm supporting projects pushing sustainability in the filed of tactical urbanism at TUM School of Engineering and Design.
I had the chance to work on a variety of exciting projects from sustainable strategy, virtual exhibitions, urban interventions to inclusive products ...
