About me

My research activities in brief

Post-Anthropocentrism is requiring radical mind-shifts in order for humans to acknowledge their intrinsic entanglement with other technological and biological systems and critically reconsider their anachronistic exceptionalism.
In this scenario, it becomes crucial to creatively envision futures including multiple perspectives. The research aims at defining how post-anthropocentric creativity can empower Design Futures as an approach to design regenerative futures for humans and non-humans.
