Andrea Botero has a broad experience in participatory design and has written a doctoral dissertation titled “Expanding Design Space(s). Design in Communal Endeavours”. As a designer, she explores services, media formats, genres and technologies for collectives, communities and their social practices. At CoID x Research Andrea will introduce her work about co-design process of media technologies developed in collaboration with elderly people.

Anna Kholina is a doctoral candidate at the Department of Design with interest in environmental aesthetics and placemaking.
