After my Ph.D in Experimental Particle Physics I worked with people with learning disabilities and as a mental health advocate, and founded Multikulti, a community-led multilingual website for asylum seekers & refugees. I attended the G8 protest in Genoa in 2001 and was one of 93 people who were beaten, disappeared & tortured by the police. While working at Amnesty International I created the Digital Directorate and led their delegation to the first UN Internet Governance Forum. I co-founded Social Innovation Camp which brought together ideas, people and digital tools to prototype solutions to social problems, and ran camps in different countries including Georgia, Armenia & Kyrgyzstan. More recently I co-founded Science for Change Kosovo, a youth-led air quality citizen science project based on critical pedagogy. I'm currently a Lecturer in Creative & Social Computing.
