Stefana led Nesta’s research work on Collective Intelligence, exploring the new forms of knowledge and problem solving that are emerging from the collaboration of networked publics, institutions and organisations.

Prior to joining Nesta, Stefana was a Lecturer in Digital Anthropology in the Department of Anthropology at UCL.

Between 2004 and 2008 she directed the Swiss observatory of digital practices in the Innovation Department of Swisscom and was a member of Swisscom’s Strategy Board.  Previously, she was in the executive team of Iconmedialab (now Digitas LBi) a position which followed the acquisition of her research company CBJ in 1998. 

She has held advisory positions in various European countries as an expert on the social impact of ICT. Stefana has been a lecturer in the Politecnico di Milano, the ENSAD in Paris and has been an invited lecturer in various Swiss Universities

Stefana has a degree in Psychology from the University of Geneva and a PhD in Cognitive Science from the University of Edinburgh. Her recent publications include chapters in the The Onlife Manifesto (2015) and Digital Anthropology (2012) and her book L’intimite au Travail (2011) which received the AFCI prize for Social Sciences. A lot of what she thinks about technology is in her TED talk.
