Beyond pursuing adequate and pleasant user interactions, my research aims at exploring design methods and artefacts to design with a sociotechnical approach, taking into account also the impact of technical innovations on people’s lives and their communities.

With this perspective, I have worked mainly in designing technology for people unfamiliar with ICTs and engaging communities in the design...

Keys: Community engagement, users engagement, social change, socially-aware design, motivation, social media, energy awareness, climate change
