I am a post doctoral researcher here at the IT University of Copenhagen since the beginning of 2018. I am currently involved on "ISSP - Infrastructuring sustainable playbour" a Marie Skłodowska-Curie project that investigates the sustainability of online collaborative commons.

I am a sociologist with a background in philosophy and STS. My research interests have always concerned the interplay between society and Information Technology through the lenses of co-construction processes. Broadly, I am interested in the role that participation plays in mediating use, design, and development aspects of IT as well as in characterizing relations among end-users, designers, and developers. My research builds on two main epistemological and methodological approaches: ethnographic, interpretive research and intervention-based research grounded on Participatory Design.
