Johanna is a research associate and PhD student at University Siegen. The starting point of her work is the increasing digitization of mobility and city infrastructures. For this purpose, she is particularly interested in developing socio-technical solutions to ensure the inclusion of users in those processes. Therefore, Johanna is developing participatory design approaches for open sharing, open data and smart data solutions in divers settings of mobility ecosystems. In her former works she e.g. worked on ride-sharing solutions for senior citizens and approached to improve the literacy and accountability of sustainable mobility. Currently, she is working on ‘mobile crowed sensing’ tools to foster user-centered mobility planning in a German city. Johanna is also working on participation and inclusion strategies with particular user groups, like those of elderly people.
