Federica Cefis Colombo


With a background in architecture (La Sapienza University of Rome) and contemporary art (Leiden University), Federica joined the MSc MADE master program (joint degree WUR, TUD) at AMS Institute to explore the values of the relationship between human and technology in the city. Focusing on urban mobility, she analyses technological artefacts such as autonomous vehicles from an actor-network perspective. Mapping the human and nonhuman actors, she reveals opportunities to address ethical issues related to the development of CAVs in the urban context. Her fascination lies in the malleability and vulnerability of these networks.
