Nicolas Nova is a multidisciplinary researcher working at the intersection of anthropology, computer science and design who studies technologies and what people do with them. He holds a PhD in Social Sciences (University of Geneva) and another PhD in Human-Computer Interaction from the Swiss Institute of Technology (EPFL, Switzerland). He was previously visiting professor at ENSCI - Les Ateliers (Paris) and Politecnico di Milano, visiting researcher at the Art Center College of Design (Pasadena, CA), a researcher at the Media and Design Lab (EPFL, Switzerland) and co-founder / curator of the Lift Conferences, a series of international events about digital culture, design and innovation.

Nicolas has been involved in and identified with hybrid design / futures practices such as “design fiction” for ten years and has been instrumental in bringing this approach to wider attention through presenting, teaching and writing, as well as speculative projects featured worldwide in exhibits, client works, festivals, and in the page of the international press. He spends his time running international field-work projects, documenting new signals in the world and making sense of them to inform and inspire design or strategy. Nicolas works both as co-founder of The Near Future Laboratory, a design fiction consultancy based in Europe and California and as Associate Professor at the Geneva School of Arts and Design (HEAD – Genève).
