Reformer

Dear visitor, I’m glad that you are visiting my online space. Welcome 🤗

Here you can find out about my current work, public talks, lecturing and past projects, too.

I’m a design researcher in digital culture, an investigator of the human experiences mediated by technology. In this vast field, my current interests revolve around  Posthuman and Speculative design, exploring human-technology relations, investigating the intersection of trust, data, agency and openness, and developing novel  communication and collaboration cultures.

Currently, I am working at the MIT MediaLab, in the Digital Learning and Collaboration Studio as a visiting scholar. In Finland I am associated the Cicero Learning – Brain, Learning and Technology research network at the Faculty of Education in Helsinki University, where I am actively working on a project called CREDU- creating novel technologies of scalable and empowering learning. In there, I am leading a work package about the relations of ethics, data and design while researching the possibilities of using user data transparently for tailoring ethical learning technology practices in existing and developing learning applications.

I am also a Doctoral Candidate at the MediaLab at Aalto University, Finland with Prof. Teemu Leinonen as my supervisor. 

At the same time, I am lecturing a University-wide course at Aalto University called Design for the Posthuman Era – Critical explorations on the ethics of emerging technologies and I am a member of the network organisation – Design and Posthumainsm.
