I am a Human-Computer Interaction researcher working in the Open Lab at Newcastle University, UK. I am a Senior Lecturer in Computer Mediated Communication. In October, I will start as an ERCIM Fellow at SICS. My research explores the ethics, methods and tools to promote citizen participation in social and civic issues. My current research examines topics such as activism, citizen science, community education, and food and technology, all through a lens of designing for community.

Keywords: HCI, food, politics, feminism.
