Monika is an Interaction Designer who works across the disciplines of science, ethics and futures. Through her design work, Monika engages at the intersection of emerging technologies, digital media and the natural environment, creating sensory rich, interactive spaces. Her passion is to build immersive experiences; mixed reality worlds that blend the digital and physical, working with a speculative mindset and experimenting with design approaches. In her latest work she’s been exploring how design, art and science, in particular the field of biotechnology, can create immersive spaces for the creation of new futures.

Her research focuses on how living systems and the natural world can help us to establish new perspectives on the future of technology and ecosystems. Monika’s focus lies in the role of ethics in the design process.

In recent years she was involved in European Commission research projects that explored topics of »Critical Heritages«, »Fusion Energy Futures« and »Ethics & Technology« collaborating with the institutions such as LSE, Newcastle University and IT University of Copenhagen.
