Hi! I'm Nigini A. Oliveira.

I’m a Human-Computer Interaction researcher and educator, especially interested in social computing, morality in AI systems, and cross-cultural & decolonial design. I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Universidade Federal de Campina Grande (in Brazil) and I'm currently a Postdoc fellow at the University of Washington. (Please, go to my Resume page for more information.)

I'm a long-distance bike rider, a literature reader, a tinkerer, and an avid coffee consumer. (My Fun page has more about me).

Feel free to contact me using the email mail@[my_first_name].me (🔒 PGP KEY).


I was awarded by the CS School at UW with funds to continue my work on designing online collaborative spaces to empower "non-Western" communities, a work I will develop with a network of collaborators and decolonial thinkers in Latin American countries. (Jan/2022)

Our LabintheWild study on social-behavior in COVID times shows that identification with humanity (in contrast with a nationality) is a stronger predictor of cooperation around the pandemic's scientific recommended behavior. (Learn More)

Happy to contribute my experience as a researcher and online study designer at LabintheWild with the Workshop on Human-Computer Interactions in the context of Citizen Science and Technology promoted by The UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. (Mar/2021)
