I am a postgraduate researcher at the Royal College of Art in London, active in the following research areas:
Ethics and Governance of Persuasive Technologies
Persuasive technologies are computer systems which are designed to influence people’s behaviours and attitudes. We spend more and more time consuming digital media, why a larger share of the human experience nowadays is mediated by pervasive digital platforms. My research focuses on new methods for understanding and designing persuasive technologies.
As several technological media has reached a high enough level of fidelity and realism, human-like simulations in photo, video and the physical world (robots!) is now proliferating. This poses unique challenges for designers, who are tasked to design relationships with artificial human-like technologies such as chatbots, voice assistants and virtual influencers.
