In 2021 she was appointed as Head of the “Organisation and Management” subject. She is member of the Council of EASST-European Association for the Study of Science and Technology. Since 2016 she is member of the New Organisation & Management Practices research group (previously NMP-New Management Practices) at the same university, and collaborates with RUCOLA-Research Unit on Communication, Organizational Learning and Aesthetics at the University of Trento (Italy). She is member of the international board of the doctoral programme in Applied Social Sciences of Sapienza-University of Rome (Italy).

Long bio: born in 1978 in Italy, Michela Cozza was trained as a sociologist. She holds a PhD in Information Systems and Organizations (University of Trento). From April 2005 to June 2006 she was research assistant at the Department of Sociology and Social Research at the University of Trento and research fellow from November 2008 to March 2014. Then, she was senior research fellow at the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science from February 2014 to February 2016. In 2016, she moved to Mälardalen University and, starting 2021, she is co-head of subject in Organisation and Management. Her current research projects focus on welfare technology and are aimed at studying the relationship between “the social” and “the material” with regard to the implications of digitalization on care practices. Practice-based theorizing and science and technology studies (STS) informs Michela Cozza’s work. Her studies ground on a qualitative methodology but are also marked by experimental approaches and methods alternative to the most traditional research techniques. In this regard, she is a certified Lego Serious Play facilitator and is also trained to apply the Open Space Technology method. She also likes to explore and apply art-based methods and participatory design methods. Michela Cozza is a registered EU Expert. She regularly reviews papers for international journals and international conferences and, in 2007, she got the special mention of “Excellent reviewer” from the Senior Technical Program Chair of ACM-CHI2017 Conference. She is organizer and co-organizer of conference tracks and workshops in her areas of expertise (see below) as well as invited speaker and participant in international conferences and workshops. She is member of the Council of EASST-European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (2021-2024). She is member of the Nordic Research Network: Health and Welfare Technology aimed to consolidate knowledge, research, higher education and experiences in the field of health and welfare technology (HWT) with a user perspective. Michela is also founding member of Socio-Gerontechnology Network that is meant to bring together international researchers with a variety of disciplinary backgrounds (including STS, critical and cultural gerontechnology, sociology, anthropology, age studies, design sciences and education) who share an interest in exploring the entanglements of ageing and technologies. She is author of a number of publications in peer-reviewed journals as well as of chapters, and conference proceedings. Her contributions are marked by interdisciplinary collaborations. Michela Cozza is co-author of the book Il genere nelle organizzazioni (Carocci-Le Bussole 2009) and author of the book Key Concepts in Science and Technology Studies (Studentlitteratur 2020).
