About me

Valeria Lopez headshot.jpg

I am a multimedia Designer, Researcher, and Educator working at the intersection of Design, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and the Human Experience. 

I'm interested in the subjective aspects of Design, and its role in shaping and mediating our relationships with technology. In my research I explore topics related to our technological present and futures, including Artificial Intelligence, Human-Robot interactions, synthetic media, art, and creativity.


I am currently a Residential Doctoral Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) at the University of Minnesota, and Adjunct Faculty at Dunwoody College of Technology (Minneapolis, MN).
