Researchers

Roman Rudel, head of the Institute for Applied Sustainability to the Built Environment (ISAAC) at SUPSI, coordinates GoEco! activities for SUPSI.
He has a wide experience in the management of interdisciplinary research projects in the field of environmental economics and technological innovation processes, with a strong focus on the interface between environmental and social aspects. He is currently leading several research projects based on participatory and “living lab” approaches in the fields of mobility and renewable energy.

Martin Raubal, professor at the Institute of Cartography and Geoinformation (IKG), coordinates GoEco! activities at ETH Zurich.
He is Professor of Geoinformation Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich. He was previously Associate Professor and Vice-Chair at the Department of Geography, University of California, Santa Barbara. Martin’s research interests lie in the areas of Mobility & Energy, more specifically in mobile GIS & LBS, spatial cognitive engineering, mobile eye-tracking, and GIS for renewable energy analysis. Martin is currently Co-Chair of AGILE (Association of Geographic Information Laboratories in Europe). He serves as Associate Editor of the Journal of Location Based Services, and on the editorial boards of Transactions in GIS, Journal of Spatial Information Science, Spatial Cognition and Computation, and Geography Compass. He has authored and co-authored more than 100 books and research papers published in refereed journals and conference proceedings.

Francesca CellinaShe is a researcher at ISAAC-SUPSI. As an Environmental engineer, Francesca has wide experience in participatory decision support systems (DSS) for natural resources management and strategic environmental assessment processes (SEA).

In GoEco! Francesca is responsible for the general project management. She also coordinates the living-lab related activities in Canton Ticino.

Paul Weiser: He is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Chair of Geoinformation-Engineering at ETH Zurich. Paul has a background in Geographic Information Science and Geography. Paul is interested in the theories behind “gamification and persuasion”, the communication of spatial information, and the design of cognitively sound information systems.

Andrea Emilio RizzoliHe is a professor at IDSIA-USI/SUPSI. His interests are in simulation and in decision support systems and he has a wide experience in the development of simulation models. In GoEco! Andrea is coordinating the IDSIA team in the development of algorithms for profiling and understanding the mobility behavior of users based on tracking data provided by the GoEco! App.

Dominik Bucher: He is a PhD student at the Chair of Geoinformation-Engineering at ETH Zurich. He has a background in electrical engineering, information technology, and computer and networks. Dominik is interested in location based services and location based search, mobile GIS, the Semantic Web, distributed systems and all their applications to the domain of mobility and energy.

Massimo Botta: He is the Head of the Master of Advanced Studies in Interaction Design at SUPSI and within the research of GoEco! he leads the interaction design team responsible for the design and development of the GoEco! app.

He held a PhD cum laude in Industrial Design and Multimedia Communication at the Polytechnic of Milan and he worked at Domus Academy Research Centre and at Philips Design as Senior Design Consultant, working on the integration between the technological development and the design of new products, services and systems. He carries on a theoretical and research activity in the field of interaction design, graphical users interfaces, dynamic interfaces and interaction techniques, knowledge organization and information visualization systems. He is the author of theoretical books on design research, on computer-based systems and information visualization and on theories and practices of web design.

Vanessa De Luca: Her research engages with the relationships between interactivity, motivational behaviors and playful experiences. At the Laboratory of Visual Culture of SUPSI she explores different kinds of interfaces, digital applications and systems in which interactive experiences encourage a variety of sustainable living approaches. In GoEco! she coordinates the design of the mobile application and the website.

Luca MoriciHe is tenured teacher and researcher at the Laboratory of Visual Culture of SUPSI. Sociologist and expert in qualitative research methodology, he has wide experience on research projects in the field of visual communication. He is responsible for communication activities at the Department for Environment Constructions and Design in SUPSI. In GoEco! Luca coordinates external communication and the recruitment of the participants to the living lab.
