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.

Human-like technology

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.
