I completed my MA in Anthropology at Warsaw University. The research I conducted was designed to complement my professional work and answer the question of the role of internet and new media technologies in the political strategies of non-profit organisations. The study was comprised of two years of fieldwork, IDI’s and participant observation of communities around NGO’s and mediated through new media technologies practices of participation in political activism.
I’m interested in studying the political agency of new media technologies – the influence and active role that ICT has on the everyday life of citizens and communities. Also, I would like to develop the reflection on design of the ecosystems where political participation is mediated through new media technologies, evaluate strategies behind such environments and describe changes they cause in the social life of their users.
Before joining OpenLab I have lived in Warsaw, worked as a project manager, trainer and anthropologist in the field of digital social innovation. I love to cycle, read books and do nothing whilst in good company.
