Jessica Broscheit

Student of Computer Science (Ph.D.)

Jessica creates multisensory experiences to explore the relationship between human and environment in the field of human-computer interaction (HCI). Her clear sense for artistic as much as functional design makes for an advanced visual rhetoric that fabricates artifacts linking both the material and the cognitive dimension. To this end, she uses various materials and digital manufacturing technologies as such as laser cutting and stereolithography.

Currently, she is working as a researcher for the FTZ SMSY at the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences. There she implements and investigates physical interfaces in ubiquitous computing environments (e.g., the Living Place lab), supervises projects, and runs participatory workshops. Her research interests include ubiquitous computing, physical data representation, tangible interaction, human augmentation, and environmental sensing.
