I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at the Umeå Institute of Design at Umeå University in Sweden. I completed my PhD at the Indiana University Bloomington School of Informatics and Computing in August 2013. My dissertation is The Mediating Role of Responsive Digital Materials: A Conceptual Investigation and Analytic Framework (full text available at tiny.cc/WiltseDiss).
My research centers around trying to understand and critique the role of digital networked technologies in everyday life and experience in ways that can speak to their design. I am particularly interested in how these technologies mediate engagement with the world through making activities visible. My work sits at the intersection of interaction design, philosophy of technology, and science and technology studies (STS), and is also informed by media and cultural studies.
