Hey, I'm Mark-Jan, based in Berlin and my my main field of interests lies in the creation of/research on information visualization. In 2017 I graduated with a master's of arts degree from the design master program (focus on Interface Design/Information Visualization) of the FH Potsdam. Currently I'm working as a research associate at the UCLAB (FH Potsdam) as well as a freelancer. If you'd like to work together, if you are interested in anything or if just want to say hi and chat, feel free to drop me a message!
