Moritz Greiner-Petter – Junior Researcher
Moritz Greiner-Petter is designer and junior researcher at the Institute of Experimental Design and Media Cultures.
He is pursuing a PhD about design paradigms in the field of Human-Computer-Interaction and Interface Design, carried out within the SNSF-funded research project Critical Artifacts.
Currently he is part of the research team of Commons in Design, a joint research project with the Institute Integrative Design.
Moritz studied Visual Communication at the Berlin University of the Arts (with a focus on Digital Media and Visual Systems) where he graduated with a diploma in 2012. During his studies, he was student assistant at his faculty’s Studio Class New Media and held several workshops about generative design and physical computing. Since 2012 he worked as a designer for the Fraunhofer Society (Department for Responsible Research and Innovation) in Berlin as part of an interdisciplinary team developing methods for user-centered and participatory technology foresight.
