Karin von Ompteda

I am currently undertaking doctoral studies within the Communication Art & Design department at the Royal College of Art, London UK. My background is in biology (MSc, University of Toronto) and graphic design (BDes, Ontario College of Art & Design), and I often find myself in the spaces where science and design converge. I am interested in data visualisation both as a research method as well as a critical art and design practice. These interests have translated into educational initiatives at RCA including a research symposium, an MA event, and an interdisciplinary workshop. I recently designed a visualisation for RCA which has been exhibited at the Brno Biennial and Bio Biennial, and published in design magazines including IDEA, Coupe, and Creative Quarterly. My doctoral research has been presented at international conferences (ATypI, Include) and institutions (University of Cambridge, Tsinghua University) and has been funded by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the United Kingdom, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
