Hi, I’m Moritz Queisner and I live and work in Berlin. I’m a researcher with an academic background in Media Studies and Science and Technology Studies. I’m a research associate at Humboldt University Berlin. My academic work investigates imaging and interaction in contemporary media technology with a focus on warfare and medicine. My current research features projects about augmented and virtual reality, head-mounted displays, 3D simulation, social media, drones and locative media. If you’re interested in working with me, please have a look at my portfolio. I’m available for conferences, workshops and other collaborations. Feel free to get in touch.
