I’m a post-doctoral researcher in the GenZ project, at the INTERACT research group at the University of Oulu.
In my work, I explore the relations between learning and technology. I’m interested in the design of environments that support learners’ agency and critical engagement. To this aim, I have adopted an interdisciplinary approach that builds on science and technology studies, collaborative and constructive design, media studies, as well as on learning and education. I build on participatory design methods to foster discussion and dialogue with stakeholders throughout the research and design process. Ensuring the process includes diversity of actors and approaches is a central concern in my design and research work towards equitable tools and systems.
Throughout my career, I have participated in several research and innovation projects dealing with the use of ICT in higher and Primary Education, as well as in informal and non-formal learning. I have also coordinated international reports on technology forecasts in learning and education, as well as co-design processes in learning design.
