Dipl.-Psych. Gudrun Rauwolf, M.A. studied psychology at the Humboldt University Berlin (Diploma Psychology), stage design and fine arts at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee (Diploma Stage design) and at the Chelsea College of Art & Design (M.A. Fine Arts / Combined Media) as a DAAD scholarship holder.
She curated the exhibition "Odor Traces - The Chemical Language of Nature" at the Phyletic Museum in Jena - in cooperation with the SFB ChemBioSys of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology.
At the Institute of Psychology and Ergonomics of the TU Berlin, she worked as a research associate in an interdisciplinary project with the Charité Berlin translating medical evidence into visual decision support, in order to facilitate the communication between physicians and patients and the decision-making processes under uncertainty.
Her central research questions are how spaces, objects and visual displays communicate insights regarding their specific presence, how they control processes and how they become (meaning) generators in human experience and behavior. The goal of her research is to make design knowledge usable in an interdisciplinary manner.
She currently works as a research associate at the Department of Architecture Theory at the Technical University of Berlin and is pursuing a doctorate in the field of architecture psychology.
