Sara is an Associate Research Scientist at the Center for Design (CAMD), Northeastern University, where she works on human-centered design, emerging technologies, and the impact of tech on humans.
She holds a PhD in Design and a Master’s degree in Design&Engineering.
Before joining Northeastern, Sara was senior research associate and project lead at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Design Lab, where she was also lecturer in experience and interaction design.
At MIT, Sara led projects on designing future user experiences enabled by emerging technologies. She adopted design fiction and experience prototyping as an approach to envision and communicate future solutions enabled by cutting-edge technologies and focused on human experiences.
Her current research is focused on the impact emerging technologies have on users when embedded in everyday objects, and their consequences on human experience and behaviors at the individual and societal levels.
