Daniela K. Rosner joins Human Centered Design & Engineering from Stanford University. Her research examines the relationship between sociocultural practices and engineering by combining ethnographic fieldwork with design interventions. Her work explores handcraft, such as knitting, and electronics repair, two areas whose relation to design and engineering innovation are often overlooked.

She worked in design research at Microsoft Research, Adobe Systems, Nokia Research and as an exhibit designer at several museums, including the Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum. Daniela's honors include the Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship, an ACM Creativity and Cognition Best Student Paper Award, and a James R. Chen Award in Information & User-Centered Design.
