Her research focuses on attunement to healing by design, which continues her design practice. The research situates between Design for Behavior Change and Design for (Mental) Health, adopts a speculative approach and participatory methods, it is grounded in new materialism, specifically in an Actor-Network Theory framework. Her research interests move among material ways for relational change, artistic and activist practices for healing, and using design as a tool for critical reassembling of the norm and the everyday life.
