Sophia Brueckner (US), born in Detroit, is an artist, designer and engineer. She has been inextricably linked to computers since the age of two and she believes she is a cyborg. Brueckner studied Computer Science and worked as a software-engineer at Google. She now works as assistant professor at the Art and Design School of the University of Michigan, where she teaches sci-fi prototyping and creative programming. Her aim is to combine her background in technology with an artist’s perspective in order to create new technologies that will benefit our mental wellbeing.
