I’m a designer and researcher, and in my work I try to bring a strong sense of empathy and humanity. I adopt a multidisciplinary approach to design and I strongly believe in the deep value of collaboration between different disciplines and specializations.

My work touches relevant design and social issues, such as the role which design could play in relation to sensitive areas and the new possibilities that this could create in a future society.

My design approach focuses on experimental strategies with the aim to bridge creative thinking and human experiences. In my practice and work I bring together experiments in participatory processes, design anthropology and social development.

I work extensively with arts-design and academic organisations, grass-roots community groups, healthcare organizations, older people, people living with dis(abilities), marginalised communities and individuals, focusing on meaning-exploration, identity and politics of inclusion.

My design practice includes research and concept development, creation/co-creation of solutions, service design, visualization techniques and dissemination.
