Marianela Ciolfi Felice
Since January 2021, I am an Assistant Professor in Interaction Design at KTH, where I work on data-enabled, body-centred technologies. I am interested in the intersections between critical feminist computing, AI, and soma design, and in how we can design responsibly technology and interventions to fight against inequalities.
I have worked previously at KTH as a postdoctoral research associate in the topic of digital women's health. During that period I explored designing for experiences of life transitions such as menarche, menopause, and contraception, from a feminist Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) perspective.
Before joining KTH, I completed my doctoral studies in Computer Science at Université Paris Saclay, France. My thesis concerned the design of interactive tools to support expert creative practice in graphic design and contemporary choreography.
Currently, I'm chairing the organising committee for this year's edition of the Future DigiLeaders event -- a career workshop targeting women and non binary researchers interested in digitalisation. The application is open! https://www.digitalfutures.kth.se/news/future-digileaders/
