dr. J. Matos Castano (Julieta)

Postdoctoral Researcher Human Centred Design

About Me

Julieta Matos Castaño is a postdoctoral researcher at DesignLab (Human Centred Design, University of Twente). Her research interests lie in the development of approaches to support collaborative futures making. In this project, Julieta explores ways to  develop inclusive smart city visions. To this end, she explores the relations between design practices, inclusive imaginaries, sensemaking processes and smart city futures.  

Her PhD dissertation at the University of Twente was about multi-stakeholder dilemmas during the design and decision-making of multifunctional projects. During her PhD, Julieta developed a collaboration tool (“the dilemma cube”) to make dilemmas explicit in a collaborative setting.

Julieta enjoys working in multi-disciplinary teams and has experience in various fields: she is an airport planner and, after obtaining her PhD, she worked as a change management consultant. Next to her research, Julieta works as a freelance and has co-founded the Speculative Futures chapter in the Hague. In her free time, Julieta loves painting, literature and wine tasting.
