Research

During my master thesis I focused on the design of technologies to support the menstrual cycle. The work was then reiterated on and reframed as a research contribution proposing 'touch' as central to generating bodily knowledge.

I'm interested in working within a feminist HCI framework, and I'm curious to explore feminist post-humanities, postcolonial computing, queer theory, speculative design, ethics/matters of care.

I’m looking for PhD positions 👋️

“Yes, some new technology emerged once everyone was permitted a decent education. But there was no trick to it. No quick fix. The problem wasn’t technological.”
“What, then?”
“I told you. People just decided to take care of each other.”
― N.K. Jemisin, Emergency Skin




“Technology is not neutral. We’re inside of what we make, and it’s inside of us. We’re living in a world of connections — and it matters which ones get made and unmade.” ― Donna J. Haraway, 1997.


“I think of feminism as poetry; we hear histories in words; we reassemble histories by putting them into words.” ― Sara Ahmed, Living a Feminist Life
