ABOUT ME

I am a Human Factors Engineer, UX-Designer and Photographer from Germany. Currently I am working in a civil engineering company in Naples – Italy where I am managing a technical project about monitoring the structural conditions of metal towers and designing the dedicated web application and website.
I studied Human Factors M.Sc. in Berlin and graduated in 2016. A few months later, I moved to Italy. I am passionate about engineering, psychology, design and photography since I was a teenager and never stopped acquiring new knowledge and skills. I know how to use psychological principles in the developing process of technical systems and the design of their interfaces. I focus my attention on the Human to understand the targets and needs of the product, to create the best interaction. 
If you want to know more about my studies and experience keep on reading. Below I described some of my current and past Projects.

HUMAN FACTORS M.Sc.

  • HUMAN MACHINE INTERACTION
  • UX-DESIGN
  • USABILITY-TESTING
  • AUTOMATION PSYCHOLOGY
  • AVIATION PSYCHOLOGY
  • PROJECT MANAGEMENT
  • CONDUCTING EMPIRICAL STUDIES

MASTER PROGRAM

I studied Human Factors at the Technische Universität Berlin. The programme has an interdisciplinary orientation, which combines engineering with psychology. The contents comprise cognition-, neuro- and biopsychology and also cognitive ergonomics and usability engineering. In the second part of the program, I put my focuses on User Experience and Aviation Psychology. I gained knowledge about the theories of usability testing and the basics of UX-Design. For my thesis, I conducted an empirical study in which I compared two different display formats of the artificial horizon display in airplane cockpits. The results of this study where very distinct and will hopefully help to make aviation saver. The thesis was rated with the best score.

ULIVA

CO-FOUNDER

Uliva is a start-up project I am realizing with a friend from high school. It started with the possibility to become the exclusive reseller of one of the best olive oils in the world in Germany. Around that, we developed the idea to create a website with an integrated shop, which is promoting and selling very exclusive and high quality Mediterranean culinary products. I created the complete website and I am responsible for the social media marketing and the content.

UX DESIGN

The goal was it, to create a unique page, which can transport the beauty and deliciousness of the Mediterranean region and cuisine to Germany. The main part should be big colourful pictures functioning in combination with written reports as storytellers to create a feeling of wanderlust inside the visitors and to inspire them about their lifestyle and eating habits. I created a minimalistic black and white layout, which is directing the attention to the pictures. The food stories are taking the visitors on a tour to the origins of the products and leading them to the product pages, where the specific information is presented.

SMART TOWER CONTROL

Webdesign by Christian Korff

PROJECT MANAGING

Smart Tower Control is a project of the civil engineering company I am working for at the moment. It is a system, which is developed to increase the safety of metal constructions such as radio towers or wind turbines. The system allows monitoring the vibrations of the structures with permanent installed sensors from afar. These vibration data than can be analysed and can give information about the static conditions of the tower. As the project manager, I am coordinating the people working in this project. I keep track of the progress and I bring the different professionals together, to make sure that the hardware and software fulfilling the engineering as well as the clients’ needs.

UX DESIGN

Furthermore, I am responsible for the website design and other public presentations of the project like Power Point slides.
The Project also includes a user interface, which provides the clients with information about the results of the static monitoring and further information of the metal constructions. I am supporting the front-end developer in creating the interface.

URBAN RECORDING STUDIO

 VIDEO MAKING

The Urban Recording Studio is a small studio connected to one of the main music clubs of Perugia a town in the heart of Italy. Many local but also more famous groups are coming there to record their music. In 2016, I was living for a few months in Perugia and was working for the Urban Club as a photographer. To make the recording studio a better-known place in the region I got the possibility to create a promotion video. It was my first video project and I was responsible for the whole process from creating the story, over shooting and the postproduction in the end. You can watch the video on the right.

 WEB DESIGN

Besides the video, I also designed a new website. The focus was it to inform possible clients about the technical possibilities and to show them the professional character of the studio. The result was a dynamic one-page layout filled with pictures from the Studio taken by me. On the right side, you can see the hero header of the website.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography is my passion and tool for my design projects. Good design includes a lot of stuff and one thing are high quality pictures to accompany the content. To focus attentions and to influence the experience and emotions of the user.

Here you can see a selection of my pictures, which comprise different techniques and genres. Mostly I am shooting digital with my Canon DSLR but I also love to experiment with analogue photography. I love oversaturated colours but also black and white photos.
