Gizing Khalandi works as an intern for the Code researchgroup at Waag. During her internship, she examines the online identity development of young adults. She focuses on how young adults present different identities on social media. How do they avoid inconveniences that can occur due to the different groups on social media (friends, family, acquaintances, etc.)?
Gizing is currently finishing her Master's degree in Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology. She is interested in exploring future imaginaries and the ethical issues that arise when new technologies are used. She previously studied Communication Multimedia Design at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and Leisure Management at Helicon MBO Tilburg.
Next to her studies, Gizing is actively learning about design by working for Design United, Manifestations, and Speculative Futures Amsterdam.
