As a doctoral researcher, I study the relationship between digital manufacturing technologies and disability, working with Research through Design methodology in the posthumanist approach. The scientific background of my design practice was Critical Disability Studies and Rosi Braidotti's Critical Disability Studies. Using the critical approach of disability science, my attention was drawn to the tools of design emerging from individual-centered norms and the repertoire of experience of connection.

In the Designer Making Department of MOME, I deal with digital technologies as a professor assistant. In addition to teaching 3D modeling, it is important that new digital object creation possibilities such as 3D printing are incorporated into students’ knowledge in the form of practical knowledge.

In addition to my teaching work, I lead an extended series of workshops and courses related to the work of the MOME Lab working groups. In the spring semester of 2018, we held a workshop together with the Design Institute at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in Vienna. In the autumn of 2019, we conducted a joint design research course connecting the two universities with a professor from Angewandte University, Dr. phil. Mag. Art. Ruth Mateus-Berrel. The educational program is supported by the Geschäftsstelle der Aktion Österreich-Ungarn.
