I teach Introduction to Design and Modernism in the Arts and Design, in Weihai Campus, China. Where I live 20 weeks a year. 

My research explores cultural implications of digital-physical interactions through participatory and creative methods.

I believe in the impact of cross-disciplinary and cross-sector collaborations. I specialize in facilitating creative workshops that foster knowledge exchange in imaginative ways.

I am currelty working in projects that explore ethical dimensions of ICT innovation as creative process. 

I am interested in explore design research a way of "doing" theories and thinking "in" methods. 

I like to play, I like mementos and magic tokens, I like feminist ontologies, I like bikes, I am into posthumanism and out of rules.
