Andrea Knaut

Interdisciplinary Laboratory

The computer scientist Andrea Knaut currently researches error correction and visualisation  as well as the dysfunctionalities of biometric monitoring technologies. In recent years she has worked in interdisciplinary contexts as an assistant researcher in Computer Science Didactics and in the research group »Computer Science and Society« at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. The search for methods of engendering a critical understanding of pervasive  digital systems outside the scientific community has become the leitmotif of her professional activity.

The analysis of visualisation concepts and metaphorical languages for teaching critical reasoning was Andrea Knaut’s key activity at the Cluster of Excellence.
