Hey. Howday. My name is Sebastian Döll. I'm a junior researcher in the field of economics with a focus on non-parametric productivity analysis and methodology. I'm also addicted to front-end design and development, crafting great user experience in the browser and on mobile devices.

Creativity & Curiosity

I'm an economist by training, affiliated with the graduate school on economic and innovative change at the FSU Jena. But I've also worked as information architect for over 20 years. The acquired skills and experiences in constructing front-ends for the information age, and the know-how to build the processing infrastructures that power them, do complement the knowledge on social and technical change. Pixelmilk is my personal showcase to get people interested in my skills & experience.

since 2010


I recieved by diploma in economics from the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena in 2010. After graduation I then joined the scientific community in the DFG Research Training Group (1411) "The Economics of Innovative Change" to do research in the field. My work is focused on paraxdoxes and puzzles in the measurement of productivy and economic methodology. In addition to my efforts on the advancement of economic thought, I teach, and supervise terms papers and thesis of undergraduates and graduates.

since 1999


Back in 1999 I created my first personal website and ever since I tried to improve it along the advancement of my skills & experience in information architecture. I assembled my know-how of designing, programming and deploying websites, and web applications, by working as a freelance web developer and employee for great companies like Pixelpark, mediaWays and IBM.

since 1993


My nerd-formation began when I got my first personal computer in 1993. I immediately felt in love with this amazing piece of technology. Not only because it was beautifully designed by Luigi Colani and on the verge of becoming an icon of industrial design of the day, but because it was the first time I could express my creativity. Designing and writing small applications in BASIC was became my form of art. Ever since these first days my passion to use technology as to create things was the driving force in my work and life.
