I am a research assistant at the IT University of Copenhagen. My background is in social anthropology and I am interested in civic engagement, grassroots movements, creative approaches to participatory design and participatory action research. I have ethnographic experience studying arts-based community outreach projects in San Francisco and Yucatán. Before gaining my MS in Anthropology I worked in the field of communications in Italy and the U.S., and as a fine art printmaker in Copenhagen.
The Give&Take project is a wonderful opportunity for me to understand how social engagement can be used to empower senior citizens, and how it can improve their mental health.
My favorite thing to share is music.
