my tech stack.
Thanks to my formal education in media technology and software engineering, I have a broad understanding of the key concepts of software development.
I have some experience in back-end engineering, databases, and software testing from my time at university. Most of my hands-on expertise, however, is with front-end technologies.

For my bachelor's thesis in Media Technology, I created a full-stack web-application for A/B testing the implications of dark patterns (intentionally manipulative design choices). More specifically, the negative effects on user trust and satisfaction were compared against potential commercial benefits. The application included a simulated online shop, followed by a self-administered questionnaire. After the study was concluded, I isolated the front-end and deployed it as a showcase.

Accordingly, the visual language of the promotional website should reflect the values of diversity, respect and progressiveness. It should not be traditional or conservative, while still conveying information in a clear and simple way. The website was created with a focus on accessibility and usability.
