Research description: Serena Di Gaetano is currently a research fellow at the University of Milan. After her graduation in Human Resources Management, she did a Second Level Master in Smart Community Design and Management at the University of Trento. Through this Master, she had the possibility to face issues related to Participatory Design for the development of digital tools and to combine her sociological background with the computing environment. The involvement of the end users during the design process of digital tools through focus groups and workshop is one of her major interests. She is also interested in the design and management of online communities. For this reason, she had an experience of internship for PIE News project, a European project that aims at giving support to people in conditions of poverty and precarity.
