I joined ITU in 2018 to conduct the "ISSP - Infrastructuring sustainable playbour" Marie Skłodowska-Curie project: a research investigating the sustainability of online collaborative commons and commoners' affective relationship with commoning. Since 2020 I am assistant professor at the Digital Design department, and primarily involved in the Digital Culture and Media (BSc) and Users in Contexts (MSc) courses.

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.
