My name is Magdalena Mihalache and I am a Teaching Assistant for the Human-Centred Research and Design in Crisis course.
Currently a Master student at Aalto, studying Human-Computer Interaction within the EIT Double Degree Master Program, I have 2 years of experience as an Employee Experience Leader in a multinational company, as well as working as Business Consultant for a local Romanian startup specialized in designing websites.
Next academical year I am going to study in Twente University in Netherlands, specializing in HCI, Intelligent Systems.
I hope that while working on this course, I will learn how to be better prepared in a world that is surrounded by crisis and supporting students to do that as well. Whether we see it or not, a crisis takes many forms. I want to learn as much as I can from the speakers how to equip myself with the skills necessary not only to survive in an unpredictive world, but also to thrive.
I look forward to getting to know everybody involved in the course and to equally learn from all the students as well.
