Hi! I’m Kay, a Teaching Assistant and PreDoc Researcher at the TU Wien’s Human-Computer Interaction Group.
I’m currently using design education and participatory design with students as an exploration of values in the creation and use of social networking services for well-being.
I studied Design Investigations at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna (Mag. des. ind.) and the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. I speak fluent English, German and Romanian.
