M.Sc.

Jacqueline Kowalski

PhD Candidate, Researcher

 

My research interests lie in analysing socio-material-technological relations in entangled online and offline spaces. I would like to find out how equal social and digital inclusion and participation in public and digital spaces should look like. In doing so, I will use qualitative-based mixed methods and apply co-productive approaches to digitally visualise future visions of inclusive, accessible, and safe urban spaces.

About Me

My research interests lie in analysing socio-material-technological relations in entangled online and offline spaces. I would like to find out how equal social and digital inclusion and participation in public and digital spaces should look like. In doing so, I will use qualitative-based mixed methods and apply co-productive approaches to digitally visualise future visions of inclusive, accessible, and safe urban spaces.

In my previous research I was working on future scenarios of augmented reality in public spaces. My work at the Institute of Technology Assessment has shaped my interests in a way that I would like to find out how different (digital) futures may develop to help decision-making processes to better understand which challenges arise from digitalisation and how inclusive, liveable, sustainable, digital futures can be created.

I completed my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Passau, with a semester at the University of Verona before I started the Master’s degree of Geography at the University of Innsbruck. During my study career I joined field trips to Indonesia and Brasil. I can proudly announce that my master’s thesis received the Award of Digitalisation Research by the Digital Science Center. This is followed by starting my PhD at the University of Innsbruck.
