Valentin is a PhD student in the Fluid Interfaces Group. He is interested in transferring benefits from our shared digital experiences to our physical reality. Prior to his arrival in the group, he cofounded a human computer interaction company supported by an entrepreneur's scholarship from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. He holds a Master of Science from the MIT Media Lab, the German Diplom (eq. Master) in Design from the Bauhaus-University Weimar and pursued interdisciplinary studies in the field of design and engineering at the Pratt Institute New York, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia and Johan-Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt.
