Florian Kräutli

IT Researcher, Research Technology Officer (Since 2016)

PhD

My research revolves around digital tools for knowledge production in the humanities. I specialize in data visualization and computational research methods in the qualitative sciences. At the Institute I am responsible for the digital research activities—this includes coordinating and implementing the digital aspects of research projects. I work with all departments, research groups, and the library on digital methods for conducting research and on solutions for maintaining and disseminating digital research outputs.

Before joining the MPIWG, I worked as a digital designer and researcher. I completed a PhD at the Royal College of Art together with System Simulation, a London-based software engineering company specialized in database applications for the heritage sector. In my research I investigated how visualization facilitates knowledge discovery and enables new insights in digitized collections. This led to collaborations with a wide range of institutions across the cultural and digital landscape, such as Microsoft Research, the Courtauld Institute, and the Britten-Pears Foundation.

Outside the cultural sector, I have worked as a web developer on projects in the areas of e-learning and data analytics. I am experienced as a lecturer and have regularly taught workshops on software development, design, and data visualization. Prior to this I completed an MSc in Cognitive Computing at Goldsmiths, University of London, focusing on philosophy of perception and artificial intelligence, and trained as a product designer at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
