Gaia Mosconi is research associate and doctoral student at the University of Siegen within the group on CSCW and Social Media (Prof. Dr. Volkmar Pipek). She received a I level Master in Sociology and a II level Master in “Smart Community Design and Management” at the University of Trento. She applies sociological research methods (mainly Qualitative Research, Action-Research) to the study and development of Information Systems. Her research interests range from civic engagement to research collaboration and data infrastructures.

Since November 2016, she is a member of the CRC1187 “Media of Cooperation” (https://www.mediacoop.uni-siegen.de/en/about-sfb-1187/) where she works in the project INF “Infrastructural Concepts for Research on Cooperative Media” (https://www.mediacoop.uni-siegen.de/en/projects/inf/). In INF, Gaia investigates how collaborative research data practices and infrastructures are changing under the auspices of the Open Science agenda. Moreover, she is the main organizer of the “Research Tech Lab”, a seminar format where PhD students explore, discuss (even design) research approaches, methods and tools. She is also involved in the conceptual development of “Research-hub” (https://research-hub.social/), a platform for research collaboration and sharing. Finally, since September 2019 she is also a member of the Locating Media Graduate School (http://www.locatingmedia.uni-siegen.de/gaia-mosconi/).
