Co-Director · Full-time Researcher · Associate Professor
Daniel López Gómez (UOC) is PhD in Social Psychology, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and Education and member of the CareNet research group since its inception. Currently, he is a full-time researcher at the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3) at UOC. His background is on Social Psychology but he defines himself as an STS scholar and ethnographer interested in care infrastructures and care practices, ageing and disability, and grassroots innovation processes such as senior cohousing or mutual-care in contexts of crisis and austerity. His PhD was a critical exploration of the intersections between care and security in telecare developments for older people. He is an experienced ethnographer and has published extensively on these topics. From a theoretical point of view, his work is very inspired by Actor-network theory, poststructuralism and feminist technoscience. More recently, he got interested in self-tracking technologies, participatory sensing projects as well as maintenance and repair practices as infrastructural care. He would also love to get into food studies some day.
He is an associate professor in the Department of Psychology and Education at UOC since 2007. From 2011 to 2013 he was a Marie-Curie postdoc of the Law, Science and Technology Studies (LSTS) research group at the Vrije Universitet Brussel. He is an associate member of the Centre for Invention and Social Process (Goldsmiths, University of London). He was also visiting scholar at Universidad Andrés Bello (Chile)
He is a member of the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST), the Spanish STS network and a board member of the Catalan Association of Geriatrics and Gerontology. He was part of the organizing and leading committee of the 2016 EASST/4s Joint Conference in Barcelona.
