I'll be starting my PhD in Interaction Design at KTH this fall! 🍃

Hej! I’m Nadia (she/her), born 1992, half from Spain, half from the USA, based in Stockholm, Sweden.

I am a designer, artist and researcher exploring feminist perspectives of technologies. I make use of body-centric design methods, participatory design, digital fabrication and new media art. I am curious to deconstruct and probe the human-machine divide, and to discover and design ways to care for each other in multispecies relationships.

During Spring-Summer 2021 I will be leading a newly funded project on ‘multispecies menstrual care’ 🌱 See the project blog here︎︎︎

Previously I’ve worked on the NAVET project Transforming the Colonial Archive︎︎︎ and during 2019-2020 I worked as a software artist at rethread︎︎︎, exploring novel ways to communicate the values and social layers of software through art and interaction design. In the latest project, I engaged with feminist entanglements of software and knitting in 'Softwear'︎︎︎

I graduated from a master's in Interactive Media Technology at KTH where I did my thesis within the Digital Women's Health group︎︎︎, exploring the design of menstrual cycle technologies through a feminist HCI lens.

I’ve also been part of the team taking care of MIDDLA︎︎︎, the interaction design lab and makerspace at the MID division.
