Short Biography

Nele Fischer studied media sciences with a focus on philosophy and design in Potsdam and Cape Town (B.A.) and futures studies at the Free University (FU) of Berlin (M.A.). She completed additional studies in design thinking at the D.School in Potsdam. Since 2013 she has been working as a freelance process designer and facilitator in the field of organizational development and transformation processes. Since 2015 she has been teaching at the Master’s Program in Futures Studies at FU Berlin in the area of critical futures studies and participatory and normative approaches. From 2017 to 2020, she worked as a research associate in the field of futures studies at the Institut Futur at FU Berlin, where she supported a project on the integration of transformative research into teaching. As of April 2020 she has worked as a research associate at TU Berlin, where she applies futures studies approaches to questions of ethics and AI, especially at the intersection of technology assessment. Participatory and transdisciplinary approaches, as well as design research, are central to both her academic and freelance activities.
