I took over the HF Berlin Student Chapter in 2010 and led it as a president for one year. During this time we increased the member count and organized events for people interested in human factors. I was part of the team organizing a HMI barcamp in betahaus Berlin. Later, I became the chapter's admin and initiated the website relaunch. In 2012 the chapter received a silver award by the HFES for its great work.
The HF Chapter Berlin is the only European branch of the American Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES). It is an address for people interested in the master degree at TU Berlin and for those generally interested in the topic. The chapter's activities include excursions to companies (Zalando, Airbus, VW), job fairs and discussion panels with renowned researchers.
A scientific barcamp on HMI
In 2013, we organised a barcamp on human-machine interaction in Berlin’s famous co-working space betahaus. More than 70 students and experts from different fields attended. One of them, Enno Park, founder of Cyborg e.V., was attracted by one of our posters and held an inspiring talk on cyborgism. Since its first occurence, the barcamp took place every year.
In order to increase the visibility of the event, we created an advertising campaign. I created posters that were placed at central locations in Berlin.
Furthermore, I was a admin member of the team responsible for the website relaunch.
