Local Researcher

Area: Italy

Clara is a specialist in design research and product design.

Clara believes that design is about connection and that, via dialogue and design, we can co-create positive and desirable futures. Describing herself as ‘half scholar, half creator’, Clara’s studies in Product Design – at the University of Sao Paulo and the Politecnico di Milano – have encouraged her to approach her work using head, hands and heart.

Having Brazilian and Italian parents, Clara was born and raised in Brazil and now lives in Italy. She speaks Portuguese, Italian and English.
