Caroline Rozendo is an interaction designer and creative technologist. She is interested in the role that different senses play in new forms of interaction with technology, and in how designers can explore intuitive processes to plan for the appropriation and expansion of their designs by the users. Before graduating at the Masters program of the Media Lab, Caroline has worked as an interaction designer and developer for educational and news media companies, where she focused on creating pleasurable experiences around informative content.
Especially because of her personal experience coming from low-income public schools in Brazil, she is also looking into how technology can be used to boost social, political and educational development, and collaborating with organizations such as Open Knowledge Brazil and the Lemann Foundation.
In Brazil, she earned a bachelor degree in Media and Communication from the University of São Paulo, and attended seven semesters of the Design program on the same university. In 2017, she joined the Media Lab. She is also the author of the book "Tipógrafos e Editores: o Período de Criação" (Tipographers and Editors: The Creation Period) - published in Brazil, about typographers from fifteenth century Europe. She is particularly motivated by storytelling, prospective design and innovation for social good.
