My name is Julia Schneider aka Doc J Snyder. I am a comic essayist and a doctor of economics. My best known work to date is the comic essay on Artificial Intelligence, “We Need to Talk, AI” which I published in 2019 in collaboration with visual artist Lena Kadriye Ziyal (available in English, German, Spanish, Slovenian and – soon – Turkish, and as open online course). My works convey complex topics through a few graphics and pointed texts. For the content of my works, I tap into my own interests and the knowledge I have gained from my work in academia – empirical labor and innovation economics – and data science. (Somewhere or another, I’m sure my expertise as a curtain and draperies salesperson 1994-96 factors in.) I am a member of the scientific committee of the Association of the Exoskeleton Industry e.V. (vdei.org) of the network efas – economy, feminism and science, of Harriet Taylor Mill Institute and of the Track Team Science and Technology of re:publica.
Reach out if you like to approach complex issues with creativity, curiosity, and respect – and if you’re bored with clichés. I really enjoy such company!
