Research Topic:
“Design for debate, the case of telepresence”
We use design as a tool for public engagement, a mean to stimulate discussion about the value and role of new technologies which reshape the way we interact with each other despite distance.

Interaction designer, artist and researcher, I work on specific topics as “technology & society”, “digital/analog interaction” and “telepresence”, since 2010. With a background in graphic & interaction design—graduated from HEAD-Geneva: MA Media Design—I explore contemporary society issues through the lens of design practice. My speculative—sometimes critical—approach seats between art and social sciences. This posture makes my work taking place over a broad spectrum of outcomes, from newspapers to scientific journals, or as a conference workshop in Geneva to an exhibition in Paris. Some of my projects participated to exhibitions as the Milano furniture fair (2010, 2011), Lift Conference (2010, 2013) and Biennale Internationale du Design de St Etienne (2013).
Today I conduct my researches as PhD candidate at TelecomParisTech & ENSADLab (École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris). They focus on a form of design that engages the audience into society problems between ethics, politics, science and technology.
