Welcome, you! Here you are about to read about my professional affiliations. Generally speaking, my work is transdisciplinary, moving across fields of media design, humanistic studies and emerging information and communication technology. In there, inside the heart of a project, I am inspired to learn about the context, understand relations and socio-cultural values, as well as identify clear and non-evident objectives. Design is in the core of my expertise. I pepper the practice with my critical opinions, ethical concerns and offer a posthuman design approach.  This is why I like to think of myself as a Digital Culture Reformer; a Designer and an avid Investigator of New Media Design. Essentially, I am interested to open, develop and create new horizons that transform human experiences and reform relations through and to technology. 


Currently, I am a visiting scholar at the MIT MediaLab, working with the Digital Learning & Collaboration studio.  In Finland, I am associated with the Cicero Learning – Brain, Learning and Technology research network at the Faculty of Education in Helsinki University. With these and other affiliated researchers, I am working on a project called CREDU – Creating novel technologies of scalable and empowering learning. Within the frames of the project, 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. The Research Through Design approach that I have adopted is theory rich and prototype oriented. My practice in R&D of digital products and services often revolved around designing for context-dependent ICT  such as Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Wearables and Mobile Technology.  Some of my developing interests include Posthuman design;  Transformational Design; Speculative Design; Design for relationships between human and nonhuman (both animal and technological) actors; The connection between trust, transparency and exchanges within HCI;  Novel Communication and Collaboration Cultures, etc.
