I am a design researcher exploring human-thing relations using sensors,
data and automation.

I am a post-doctoral research fellow hacking open source hardware (OSHW) and the Internet of Things (IoT).

I have a background in Electronics Engineering, New Media Design and Interaction Design.

I research at the intersection of technology and soft textile yarns.



The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.
(McLuhan, 1954)

Designer. Researcher. Crafter. Teacher.

In my research, I explore how sensors, data, and automation can generate novel and unexpected relations with everyday things and support critical and reflexive engagements around the technology's social and political role in society. You can read more about it in my PhD dissertation, which is called 'Researching IoT through Design: An Inquiry into Being-at-home.'

My current post-doctoral research is about open source hardware (OSHW) hacking and the Internet of Things (IoT) for critically experimenting with alternative conditions of possibility around how people might otherwise experience data-driven things in their daily lives.

I publish my work in journals, conferences, and magazines and conduct workshops at tech festivals. I have an background in Electronics Engineering, New Media Design and Interaction Design Research.
