Hasso-Plattner-Institut für Softwaresystemtechnik

Daniel Rother

As a native of Berlin, Daniel completed his studies as an industrial engineer at the Technical University of Berlin and the University of California, Berkeley. He worked for various companies in the Internet, Pharma and Entertainment sectors over the years. He owes his piece of luck at getting to know and appreciate the D-School to his prior position as a research assistant at the Insitute of Installation and Facility Engineering. Interdisciplinary collaboration within a creative environment in combination with the conviction that "innovations are not solely products of chance", encourage Daniel to participate at the D-School with all of his passion.

Since summer 2009 Daniel is no longer active at the D-School, but continues to promote Design Thinking with his own consultancy.
