I am teaching the practical use of different 2D and 3D applications of the apparel industry and research as assistant of the Virtual Lab in the field of 3D virtual prototyping as well.As a graduated engineer of Textile and Clothing Technology (Niederrhein University) I started my textile career as a software application manager in the apparel industry. Being responsible for software implementation and user trainings, I have got a wide experience in the world of CAD and associated systems. Being interested in further fields of the apparel industry I have specialized on MtM Grading as well as on macro technologies. I have several years of practical experience in 3D simulation systems including motion capturing and Virtual Reality.
