Hi! I am Elena. I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Norwegian University of Science an Technology (NTNU), in Trondheim, Norway. Here is my NTNU profile.
The goal of my research is to promote a research agenda on environmentally sustainable digital innovation in public and private organizations.
My main research interests are:
- sociotechnical challenges of implementing and maintaining digital platforms and information infrastructures;
- environmentally sustainable infrastructures (Green IS);
- algorithmic knowing (knowing with algorithms and Big Data);
- empirical research methods to study infrastructures and platforms.
My research is based on an interpretive research philosophy. I rely on a portfolio of qualitative methodologies inspired by ethnography to understand how people deal with technology as part of their daily work. I adopt a use-centered approach for exploring how digital systems can better support sustainable design and development.
I have a PhD in Information Systems from NTNU, based on a trans-disciplinary and empirical analysis of digital infrastructures for environmental risk assessment during oil and gas operations. I also have a MSc in computer engineering from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy).
Today, my main academic field is Information Systems, but I enjoy taking lengthy detours in Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), Science and Technology Studies (STS), and Participatory Design (PD).
