He is also a member of the IN3 CareNet Research Group where he is developing his thesis project ‘Understanding ageing: A socio-material approach to the design of social and technological innovations for the elderly’. His thesis is concerned with the role played by the design of innovations for the ageing society in the current redefinitions of old age. Specifically, it is exploring how the ageing process is enacted in those social and technological innovations that are meant to respond to the challenges of the ageing societies. In this line, the thesis approaches the ageing process as socially and materially configured through the design of these innovations.
