Waste prevention in smart cities
TL;DR: my research is creating ways to promote the reuse of materials in urban contexts. I am organising an online co-design lab in April 2021.

Felipe Fonseca: I am investigating how digital technologies can significantly reduce waste in urban contexts, by promoting the reuse of materials. My specific focus is on practices of repair, upcycling and re-circulation, seeking economic as well as social and environmental outcomes locally. This is all part of my PhD research in an EU-funded doctoral programme called OpenDoTT. You can find more information about it in my research blog.
