Rui Manuel Vieira Leitão

I am a UX/UI designer and researcher working from print to interactive displays. I am concerned with how media communicate with people in order to inform, educate and engage them.

Under the umbrella term of gamification, I’ve been doing research in the field of science education in order to improve the user experience and increase the user’s motivation and engagement. 

Presently my research interests are related to science communication and technology, particularly how to strengthen people’s risk awareness and how to motivate the population at risk to take preventive actions and to be prepared for an emergency case under climate change conditions.
