Oliver is a researcher and PhD student at the University of Siegen in the research group for Computer Supported Collaborative Work & Social Media. He has a background in Human Computer Interaction (MSc) as well as Psychology & Applied Computer Science (an interdisciplinary BSc) and has worked as a visiting researcher at Birzeit University, West Bank, Palestine as well as in kitchens and motorcycle workshops, among others. If asked, he describes himself as a researcher, maker and a minimalist. Those traits culminated in him founding Fab Lab Siegen as an infrastructure for research, teaching, an outlet for creativity, exploring alternative economic approaches as well as to foster distributed / local resilience. Work along all those branches and the pitfalls that come with them – such as the inevitable involvement in politics – will keep Oliver busy for the next few years.
