Hi, I’m Patricia

Patricia, dressed in black, looking at the camera.

I am interested in understanding how individuals experience technologies as part of their lives.

Currently, I am waiting for the examination of my PhD thesis in Communications at the University of Technology Sydney, Australia. For over three years, I’ve been studying how social media transform individuals’ experiences with political participation.

I am a curious person who is always willing to learn about different things outside of my comfort zone. Before engaging in academia, I have worked for more than ten years as a journalist in Brazil, focusing on understanding the impact of government and judicial decisions on citizens’ lives. As a researcher, my focus continues to be on individuals but now looking at how technologies impact their experiences.
