"Researching to challenge misconceptions and learn more about our world"
My research draws from Black feminism and Afrofuturism to explore how these methods of knowing offer an approach to help Human-Computer Interaction(HCI) researchers and designers create more reflective products and experiences. I continually ask how Black feminism can provide a framework to design? What narratives and perspectives are missing from current HCI research? How might we use Afrofuturism as a design method?

I am a PhD student
in Digital Media at
My name is Brooke Bosley, and I am a third-year Ph.D. in Digital Media, specializing in Black Media, at the Georgia Institute of Technology. My dissertation focuses on the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction, Afrofuturism, Black Feminism, and Race & Technology.
I hold an MS in Digital Media from the Georgia Institute of Technology, as well as a BA in Integrated Digital Media (a self-design interdisciplinary degree) with minors in communications and mathematics from Wesleyan College (in Macon, Georgia). I have taught educational workshops on robotics and technology through the Georgia Tech’s, College of Computing. I have also volunteered with FIRST Robotics and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT). Most recently, I have volunteered with a local architecture and design foundation, where I led educational workshops for K-5th graders on community design.
I have worked as a freelance designer with a startup, as well as a web designer with the Georgia State University, College of Education. I have also interned with Microsoft as a design researcher for two years.
When I am not working, studying, volunteering or focused on completing my dissertation, I am cross-stitching or reading. I also love exploring restaurants in Atlanta, GA. Please feel free to connect if something on the portfolio is of interests.
