Dr. Daria Loi

Dr. Daria Loi is Senior Research Fellow at the Globalism Institute and Lecturer in Industrial Design at RMIT University. Since the late 1990s she has been involved in a number of research endeavours: ARC Researcher in 1999; member of multidisciplinary Telstra Home Team at the Interactive Information Institute (1999-2001); Research Fellow in the Australian Federal Government-funded C2C project (2001-2002); and Visiting Researcher at IADE in Portugal (2004). Dr. Loi has presented her work in Europe, Australia, the USA and Canada and her practice revolves around: arts-based inquiry and qualitative research; Participatory Design; HCI and tangible media; trans- and post-disciplinarity; collaborative practices; and constructivist learning/teaching. Her PhD thesis-in-a-suitcase has been presented in a number of occasions and countries to support the debate on art-based inquiry and to foster its adoption within academic contexts. Her suitcase is also used as a consultancy tool to foster collaborative practices and in 2005 she was invited to include a copy of this thesis in the collection of the Centre for Arts-Informed Research at the University of Toronto.
