Details 2: Elena Márquez Segura is a design researcher with a multidisciplinary background, including a Ph.D and Ph.Lic in Human-Computer Interaction (Uppsala University, and Stockholm University; Sweden), master’s studies in Interactive Systems Engineering (KTH; Sweden), and a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Telecommunication Engineering (Universidad de Sevilla; Spain). She is also a certified trained instructor in several fitness practices, including aerial fitness, barre, and Pilates. Elena is an expert in novel embodied ideation methods for the design of rich physical and social experiences in collocated settings. She has used her methods to facilitate and lead ideation activities in various domains, including physical rehabilitation, interactive performances, movement-based games and play experiences, and future envisioning workshops. Elena’s research focuses on movement-based co-located social interaction. She advocates for designing experiences taking an embodied interaction approach, i.e. one that foregrounds and leverages one’s physical and social ways of being. In her dissertation, Elena developed concepts and methods for the design of movement-based co-located social interaction. She has also worked in a variety of application domains, ranging from serious settings (e.g. interactive rehabilitative physical therapy) to non-serious ones (e.g. movement-based games for children), utilizing different technologies including mobile game platforms, wearables, VR, and robots. Elena has published extensively on this work in top tier conferences and journals.
