Kit Kuksenok, PhD

Hello! I'm a Berlin-based technologist & teacher. I hold a MSci (2014) and a PhD (2016) in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Washington (Seattle); and I am currently working on an MPA at the Hertie School of public policy and governance in Berlin.

Technical Training for Teams

As a technical trainer for organizations across sizes and sectors, I help teams adapt emerging technologies to the needs of their work.

The topic of organizational change, and how a group can adapt new technologies to their work, was the subject of my PhD. Over the last decade, I have expanded my knowledge of organizational change and technological adaptation through experience as a software engineer and data analyst; and through coursework and training within my current master's program. Since 2010, I have worked with/in various teams in the tech industry, working primarily on B2B applications. Some of my work contributed to peer-reviewed publications that can be viewed on my Google Scholar and ORCiD profiles.

Get in touch if you're interested in a tailored workshop, which bridges both technical and non-technical work, on a topic such as:

You can get in touch with me via LinkedIn, or through the contact form below.

Technical Mentorship for Artists

I also offer 1:1 mentorship and tutoring to artists and creatives on technological topics, for example: p5.js for visualization; Python for data analysis or machine learning; optimizing C++ for Arduino projects. Aside from technical support, I can provide in-depth conceptual feedback and guidance. If you'd like to work together, the first step is to have a short (30 mins) chat about your project to see if and how I could support you - so please get in touch below, I look forward to hearing from you!

Upcoming Events

Courses @ School of Machines (Berlin/online)

In April 2023, Ipresented my work on body data at Data for Care @ NeMe Arts Center. I use participatory performance, drawing, and movement to study how people encounter body data. This work, ongoing since 2008, has included systematic self-reflection, such as through consumer self-tracking technologies; recently extending to digital surveillance of human bodies. Read more about this project here.

I am a multidisciplinary artist. Drawing and creative writing constitute the core of my artistic practice, with a focus on participatory interventions, such as collaborative storytelling. Digital methods play a conceptual and analytic role in my work. My non-academic work has been published in The Posthumanist, and in physical and digital publications of My artist book "How do we know what we know about hormones" is currently in the process of publication by HumDrum Press.
