As a researcher at the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and creativity , I am investigating technological affordances and behavioural aspects associated with the use of AI for creative tasks. Technologically, I conceptualise how AI models and mimics human creativity. I also develop prototypes for certain creative tasks, such as logo generation, logo animation, and fashion design. From a behavioural science perspective, I examine the influence of creative AI on human creativity. Yet, we cannot foresee whether creative AI will reinforce the humans’ tie to themselves or support human’s in going beyond themselves. I want to change that!

With seven years of work experience, mostly in consulting (SAP, McKinsey), I orientate my research on the questions and needs of organisations willing to supplement their creative tasks with AI.

Bosch - Exploring the World of Generative Artificial Intelligence, 2023

People and Culture @ Bosch

An exploration of the fascinating world of Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI). Discovering what GAI is, how it works, and the implications it has for the future of work. We dived into the cutting-edge technology behind natural language synthesis and image synthesis, and examined the role of multimodality in GAI. But with all its promises, GAI is not without controversy, and we also discussed some of the ethical and social implications surrounding it.
