Vita

Gaia Mosconi has a multidisciplinary background that combines architecture and urban planning (specific focus on social housing, participatory urban planning, commons creation), sociological research (specific focus on Qualitative Research, Action-Research, Territorial Development) and information technology (specific focus on digital media). She graduated at the university of Trento on 2015 with a Master thesis on “Digital technologies and urban commons. The case study of Social Street”. The aim of this project was to generate large governance for urban commons (involving citizens, public administration and social service) starting from organizing events and activities in the neighbourhood by actively using Facebook. Afterwards, she got a post-master in “Smart Community design and management”. Currently, Gaia Mosconi is researcher and doctoral student at the University of Siegen within the group on CSCW and Social Media (Prof. Dr. Volkmar Pipek ). In particular, she is involved in EmerGent, a project which is currently working on getting the public (citizens, social structures, industrial companies) involved in crisis management as an active partner. Within EmerGent, Gaia will share her experiences as qualitative researcher on social media participation and civic engagement.
