Studying at the PD line focused my attention on issues regarding effective communication, data-visualization, findability and usability.

During my studies of Information Architecture, I remained to be positively surprised by the inspiring challenges every semester brought in front of me. It focused my attention on practical issues regarding effective communication, data-visualization, findability and usability. The variety of tasks and projects helped me to master tools, models and patterns of thinking that I today apply and further develop, not only in my professional life, but also on daily basis whenever I face the information overload of the modern age.

Besides the highly pragmatic aspects of the studies, formerly studying theology, I highly valued also the richness of the theoretical, and at times, outright philosophical content. I have experienced great flexibility as professors, within the academic framework, supported and helped me develop my specific areas of interest. This allowed me to investigate ethical considerations of employing persuasion in the domain of worldviews and religions.
