Elisa Rubegni is a post-doc Fellow at the Università della Svizzera italiana in Switzerland.  Her research interests intersect the fields of Human-Computer Interaction, Communication Sciences and Interaction Design. Her focus is on how human activity is mediated by ubiquitous and mobile technology as well as in investigating the socio-technical issues encountered. In particular, whether and under what conditions technology can be an efficient means for supporting learning processes - e.g. tourists, museum visitors, and students.
