About

A graphic designer who moved towards research where design thinking applies: rough prototyping, service design, visualization & information design... passing through social impact and user centeredness. At the moment I am conducting research and experiments around two main research projects: contracts visualizations and rapid experimentation of intangibles (services & social actions). The ring that links these two fields is visualization, and visual tools to promote knowledge exchange in complex processes. I wish to pursue PhD studies about these topics, starting spring 2012. Apart from academic work, I freelance as graphic designer.
