Dominik Knoll is a graduate student and researcher in the Strategic Innovation Research Group lead by prof. Alessandro Golkar.
He graduated from the University of Salzburg (Austria) in 2007 in Applied Computer Science with a thesis on autonomous robotics and computational intelligence. By that time he deliberately chose to start working in IT business to get hands on experience in a broad range of duties before getting back to academia. In 2014 he joined SkolTech to proceed his studies, research and innovate. As part of the research group he is engaged in the setup and fitting-out of SkolTech’s Concurrent Engineering Design Lab.
Loving to engineer his ultimate goal is to create tools that significantly improve peoples’ lives. As a Software Engineer he is passionate about applications for team collaboration and organizational communication, knowing that every technical innovation needs to account for human interaction and collaboration.
His educational background includes and electronics engineer diploma from High school, a bachelor’s and master’s degree in applied computer science.
