INFORMATION DESIGN / DATA VISUALIZATION

Hey, I'm Mark-Jan, based in Berlin and my main field of interests lies in the creation of/research on information visualization. In 2017 I graduated with a master 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), where I lately mainly focus on visualizations for cultural collections and visualizations for historical social network analysis. Furthermore, I work as a freelancer for data visualizations in general and enjoy to speak at conferences or to give workshops. If you'd like to work together, if you are interested in anything or if just want to say hi, feel free to drop me a message or find me at twitter (@markiaaan)!
