I'm a designer, educator and project lead, who treats design and pedagogy as vehicles for putting politics into practice.
I work on theory and methods in Participatory Design and Service Design, and their intersection with Feminist theory and Social Justice. I am interested in subverting the ways that technology is designed, often monopolized and serving the interests of a few, towards more communal, community-driven processes for technology design. To that end, I co-shape collaborative spaces where we envision and design technology-mediated systems and services that help us achieve our situated goals for health, wellbeing, pleasure and connection.
I complement my practice with graphic design, visual thinking, collage and illustration.
I am an advisor for the Feminist Internet Research Network, where we do collaborative research about Gender and Digital Technologies across activisms in the Global South.
I am currently an Assistant Professor at the School of Art & Design in the University of Illinois Urbana-Champagin
Previously an Assistant Professor of Practice at the School of Design and Creative Technologies in UT Austin.
