SANDRO SCHWARZ

Chief Architect for IT Solutions
As an Egyptologist and computer scientist, I take on a mediating role between archaeology/cultural studies and the IT world. My experience ranges from enabling scientific research to communicating the results of said research with the development and operations planning of educational applications; mainly AR apps and VR stations.

The goal of my work is not to distract with technology but to enhance the visitor experience and make people look closer at the museum pieces themselves.
