Andreas Peetz

After completing my master’s degree in media computer science at the TU Dresden, I started working as a research associate at the Interactive Media Lab Dresden in March 2019. This also marked the beginning of my work at CeTI. In the course of my research, I primarily explore near-body interaction and how we can develop and utilize novel systems such as wearables and textile interfaces.
Therefore, my primary focus in CeTI is the TP2 room, where we work together on the development of new wearables, sensors, actuators and interaction concepts which connect multimodal input and output possibilities to support humans in the cooperation with cyber-physical systems in the real and virtual world.

Projects/Cooperation within CeTI you are involved in:

• CeTI-Truck
• Surf Demo
• Workshops on Digital Fabrication

CeTI rooms within CeTI you are involved:

TP2, K3, U1

Further Questions:

What do you value most about your work at CeTI?

I really enjoy working in an interdisciplinary team because many different perspectives on a problem stimulate the process of creating creative solutions.

What was your best moment at CeTI so far?

The presentation of my work in the CeTI truck. Making scientific work accessible to a larger audience was an exhausting but also very rewarding experience.

What else would you like to research?

In addition to research on near-body interaction, I am very interested in digital fabrication. The possibilities that these technologists offer us are very broad and far from fully utilized.

How do you spend your spare time?

Besides social activities, my hobbies include making music and tinkering with various DIY projects. Quite often I combine them and build my own musical instruments like ukuleles or synthesizers.
