Research Topic:

Broadly speaking, their thesis investigate the ways bodies are taken into account in design processes and discourses. Their researches articulate design studies, HCI and sociology. More specifically, they conducted a participatory action research for two years in a special education center. They investigated how inclusion, as an educational paradigm, impacts caregiving practices, and the design of instructional technologies. A second project, in collaboration with Frédéric Valentin was conducted during a research residency at the Carrefour Numérique‘s Living Lab. It consisted in exploring the perceptions of wearables by the general public. It also included participatory design workshops.
