Presentation and Journal Paper: Evaluating Experiences of Autistic Children with Technologies.

Last year in Barcelona, I have given a talk about how I plan to evaluate the experiences of autistic children with technologies. You can find the slides for the talk here. They also allow a unique glimpse into a preliminary state of what was later becoming my paper at the International Journal of Child Computer […]

Subjectivity in Mathematics – Implications of Richard Buckminster Fuller’s Energetic Geometry

I compare Euclidean and Energetic Geometry to show how there is a set of mathematical languages, which are subjected to interpretation. This theoretical exercise provides deeper insights into the agendas and world views mathematical concepts carry and deconstruct the presumed ‘neutral’ or ‘objective’ stance that is largely attributed to them.

On Reviewing and Receiving Reviews

Evaluation is not just a matter of threading a judgement through a procedure, but also of characterizing the quality of something. — Stefan Hirschauer: Editorial Judgements Double-blind peer review is one of the pillars of the scientific apparatus. Many manuscripts are evaluated by their peers before they are being published in order to ensure quality […]

Person-First or Identity-First?

When I started my PhD, I was occupied for several months with almost exclusively the question on whether I would say “autistic people” or “people with autism.” Before I say more, you should know that I do not identify as autistic myself – albeit disabled – but grew up with an autistic sibling. I stumbled […]

Pytris – A Python Script for Testing Tetris Algorithms

In another post, I explained a probably non exhaustive list of the different types of Choosing Blocks Algorithms that might exist for Tetris.  Here I explain Pytris, a script that has the logging abilities for research into the algorithms.  This is part of my ongoing Master’s Thesis Project.  If you’re interested in the source code, just contact me!

Talk ‘Surveil and Calculate’ at XII Conference on Culture and Computer Science

In May I was at the XII Conference on Culture and Computer Science in Berlin and gave this talk when it was accepted as a contribution to the conference by a peer reviewed abstract.  That was also my first conference ever at which I was talking, so I was a little nervous. However it worked […]
