Andrea Rosales is a postdoctoral researcher at Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. She combines qualitative research and passive metering with an intergenerational perspective to understand the use of digital systems. She highlights the importance of critical analysis of algorithms of intelligent systems to design digital systems that take into account digital minorities such as older people.
Her research focus on topics related with TICs and Older People. How do seniors use mobile technologies? How does this differ from younger adults? How do older people learn how to use technologies? And, what new technologies do they imagine would be useful in their lives?
Education: Andrea Rosales received her Ph.D. in Information Communication and Audiovisual Technologies at Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) with the dissertation, “Designing wearable and playful accessories to encourage free-play amongst school-aged children” (2014). Previously she received her Interdisciplinary Master’s Degree in Cognitive Systems and Interactive Media from the UPF and her Social Communication Degree from the Universidad del Valle.
