Andrea Kelemen is a design researcher interested in investigating technology from the perspective of folds: the folding of the symbolic into the digital, the virtual into the actual and the cognitive into the material.

Since acquiring her MA in Philology, Andrea completed a number of post-graduate courses in the fields of anthropology, sociology, design, computer science, and philosophy, and has 6 years of experience working in industry as a design researcher.

Primarily working in the ML space, Andrea uses ethnomethodology and philosophy to bridge the gap between procedural and descriptive knowledge and create post-representationalist vernaculars for dialogic innovation.
Andrea’s practice is strongly grounded in data ethics and the open science movement and she is currently working at Reflexive Codes (RC), her self-initiated design research studio.

RC’s approach to design research is fundamentally exploratory/generative, participatory and continuous. RC works closely with designers, PMs, engineers and customer facing teams in order to implement discovery processes that help teams innovate in the Software 2.0 paradigm.
