Academic training: Master’s student in Interaction Design | Faculdade de Arquitetura of Universidade de Lisboa

Susana has a degree in Multimedia Art from Faculdade de Belas-Artes of Universidade de Lisboa (FBAUL) and is student of a Master’s degree in Interaction Design from Faculdade de Arquitetura of Universidade de Lisboa (FAUL).

She’s working right now on her master’s degree thesis about cemetery tourism in Cemitério dos Prazeres in Lisbon. Her research is based on how to transform this place in a way of making it possible to offer an immersive experience to blind people, evolving them on the ambience and giving them the opportunity of, while using sensors and sound gadgets, enjoying the cemetery on a whole new level. The objective it’s to give them a safe route that guides them through the stories and memories of the ones buried there, transporting those emotions to the public that can’t receive them through vision, getting advantage of the other senses.
