Nina Wagner

Project Lead

is experienced with digital twins and their counterparts: physical twins. While working as an engineer, she gained hands-on experience regarding product development and complex machinery. These objects’ aesthetics provoked her interest in industrial design, which led her to study at the Zurich University of the Arts. During her studies, she got fascinated by the sheer infinite possibilities of virtual 3D applications. She immersed herself in virtual 3D – visualizing, animating, creating virtual realities. Now she incorporates her knowledge to perfect your machines by creating their enhanced siblings.
