Anthropologist, sociologist and political scientist with passion and commitment for applied methodologies in social sciences to technology development. I have professional and academic experience in UX Research, project management and testing of technological tools within the HE projects.
I have also taken part in UX consulting and research projects. This includes multi-sited ethnographies about educational tools, designing a participatory mapping with elderly people in London and docummentary filming about racism in social media.
Currently I lead the UX research efforts in several HE projects, such as Trustchain, where I mentor and guide the user-centric approach for the Open Call project winners.
My objective is that the technological solutions resulting from these projects think about the user, and are designed in a way in which they are accessible, give answer to the user's real needs and take into account societal impact.
