👋 Hi, I'm Sebastian
I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Information. My research and educational interests center around how technology influences and shapes soceity. I investigate how people use and interact with technology, and how to educate people on using digital tools. I'm also interested in understanding how governments and corporations conduct surveillance, with a particular focus on its impact on privacy and social dynamics.
Currently, I work with metaLAB at Harvard University's Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society to help teachers bring generative AI into their classrooms. I also hold positions with the University of Toronto's Failure: Learning in Progress project and Knowledge Media Design Institute. I previously investigated deceptive design as an undergraduate fellow for the University of Toronto's Critical Digital Humanities Initiative.
My interdisciplinary background blends together information science, human-computer interaction, the digitial humanities, and surveillance studies to inform my research and interestes. I also have experience with programming and UX design, which helps me build web platforms to support my work.
