Hello/Ciao/Alo/Hola! my name is andres lombana bermudez (aka vVvA) and i am a designer/researcher/educator.
I work on the intersection between
youth, digital technology, learning, and literacy. I am a PhD candidate in
Media Studies at UT-Austin and previously completed a MSc in Comparative Media Studies at
MIT. I study how young people use technology for learning, communicating,
and participating in culture, economy, and society. I am particularly interested in studying youth new media practices, digital inequalities, and geo-locative media. Currently, I am a member of the Aprendiendo Juntos/Learning Together Council (AJC), a mentor at the Youth and Media Lab at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, and a research assistant at the Connected Learning Research Network.
For more information about my academic research and design practice please check out my portfolio website.
I keep a blog at vVvAlog
