My research focuses on Human-Computer Interaction for societal engagement. I am interested in how technologies can enable, or hinder, democratic processes of participation. I investigate how public concerns can be represented on through digital platforms, interactive artefacts, and public events.
In 2020, I joined the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (Italy) as an Assistant Professor. From this beautiful alpine region, I collaborate with colleagues and friends from around the world. I have worked on narratives, gender, and computing in FemTech.dk; on sustained participation, digital platforms, and issue formation at the ParticipaLab of MediaLab Prado; and on representing matters of concerns in spazioD.
I teach subjects at the intersection of computer science, design, and STS such as Human-Centered Computing, Critical Design, and Community Engagement and Development.
