Sensing Social Challenges
We are a team of applied anthropologists and social innovators. We design and execute research methods that are culturally sensitive, inclusive and participatory.
We both hold PhD’s in anthropology and have backgrounds in urban sensing and citizen engagement in the context of smart cities.
Using both the human and technological senses, our research methods grasp more than just quantifiable data, but also subjective forms of awareness, experiences and associations.
Our research infrastructure gives participants control over the data gathered about them, as well as the methods and means for representing and analysing this data.
We currently work on a research infrastructure of mobile sensing that acknowledges the many different ways in which people ‘sense’ and communicate their health and well-being.
