M. Belén Calavia Ferrández
Belén Calavia graduated in Engineering in Industrial Design and Product Development from the School of Engineering and Architecture (EINA) of the University of Zaragoza (UZ) in 2015 and obtained the Master's Degree in Product Design Engineering from that same school in 2017. During her training, she got different awards related to innovation and design.
Her research interests are focused on design, creativity and technology fields, especially User-Centred Design and Design Thinking. These interests led her to join HOWLab in April 2017, where she completed her Master's Final Project: “Contributions from Design and Technology to Foster Creativity in Schools”, with which she obtained the “Extraordinary award”.
This line of research led her to begin her doctoral thesis in Design and Manufacturing Engineering at HOWLab. To conduct her studies, she is affiliated to a pre-doctoral scholarship from the Government of Aragon. This thesis is focused on the design and development of tools to apply design thinking in educational environments and promote creativity.
During her research, she has developed several methodologies and she publishes scientific papers, including both conference and journal's indexed papers. Likewise, she teaches in the University of Zaragoza, where she continues her training with courses related to creativity, design and education.
