Welcome! My name is Gabriel and I am a design researcher at IDEO Cambridge. I have a passion for and extensive experience in research and design at the intersection of technology, media and community building.
Prior to IDEO I worked as a researcher and faculty member at Emerson College and Syracuse University, facilitating community driven digital solutions for public engagement challenges and building and analyzing learning and collaborative experiences in large scale online communities.
In addition to my work at IDEO, I lead and support various action-research, activist, and community organizing projects that build dialogue, common ground, and economic solidarity. I am the founder of the Transformative Culture Project and the co-founder of Place/Setting. I hold a Ph.D in Information Science and Technology from the Syracuse University School of Information Studies.
