About

Interaction design researcher. My research deals with cultural heritage materials and design. I have been involved in co-designing participation in museums through the use of interactive pieces. The book can be found on-line: "Designing for an Open Museum. An Exploration of Content Creation and Sharing through Interactive PIeces".

After graduation, I got a grant to go to Argentina and I was working as visiting researcher in LINKS, a civil association for the study and promotion of Information Society. The group is lead by Susana Finquelievich. Also, I have been teaching to postgraduate students in the Faculty of Architecture Design and Urbanism of the University of Buenos Aires.

From 2011-2013 I worked as Interaction Design Lecturer in Laurea University of Applied Sciences. I was the Head of the Master in Business Administration in User Centered Design. The best part of this work were the interesting talks and discussions with students. Now I have a position as a Postdoctoral researcher in Arki research group in the Department of Media, School of Art, Design and Architecture, Aalto University.
