Short bio

Working as an anthropologist among designers, allows me to realise the surprising  ways in which their gaze on the world  alters our view on different environments. As an anthropologist, I contribute to (re)thinking design with critical reflection and descriptions. My ethnographic research with Sinti had led me to questions of flight-marriage, relationships with the deceased, gift economies and of the appreciation of people who do not need writing for their historical memory. Currently, I am working in different research teams exploring grasslands and their more-than-human actors, as well as on questions on how to understand and translate the possible communications between different species.
