I am a re­se­arch asso­ci­ate at the Cluster of Excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung. An Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Hum­boldt Uni­ver­sity Ber­lin. I have an aca­de­mic back­ground in Media Studies and Science and Technology Studies with a fo­cus on me­dia theo­ry, image theo­ry and po­liti­cal theo­ry. My cur­rent re­se­arch in­clu­des pro­jects about aug­men­ted rea­lity, com­pu­ter si­mu­la­tion, so­cial me­dia, re­mote war­fare, lo­ca­tive me­dia and peer-to-peer eco­nomy.


Summer School: On Computer Simulation Methods

September 25-29, 2017, High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS)
Organizers: Michael Resch, Viola Schiaffonati, Giuseppe Primiero, Andreas Kaminski

Call for Applications: The trans­for­ma­ti­on of sci­ence through com­pu­ter si­mu­la­ti­on is of­ten con­s­i­de­red to be a me­tho­do­lo­gi­cal one. A lot of li­te­ra­tu­re has been de­di­ca­ted to de­ter­mi­ning the re­la­ti­ons­hip bet­ween com­pu­ter si­mu­la­ti­on, ex­pe­ri­ments or theo­ries as the clas­si­cal sources of know­ledge. This re­la­ti­on is both me­tho­do­lo­gi­cal­ly and tech­ni­cal­ly com­plex. On the one hand, it is dif­fi­cult for phi­lo­so­phers, so­ci­al sci­en­tists, and his­to­ri­ans to gain de­tail­ed in­sight into the me­thods used among prac­titio­ners. On the other hand, for com­pu­ter sci­en­tists and prac­titio­ners in ge­ne­ral, the me­tho­do­lo­gi­cal li­mi­ta­ti­ons and de­sign cons­traints that si­mu­la­ti­on tech­ni­ques im­po­se on hy­po­the­sis for­mu­la­ti­on and tes­ting may not be ob­vious. The sum­mer school ad­dres­ses the­se pro­blems by of­fe­ring lec­tures and tu­to­ri­als on com­pu­ter si­mu­la­ti­on me­thods for scho­l­ars from the hu­ma­nities, so­ci­al sci­en­ces, and com­pu­ter sci­ence.
