Katta has a background in Cultural Studies and Computer Science from Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Before joining Social Play Technologies, Katta was also part of the successful OutsideTheBox project in which the research team co-designed technologies with individual autistic children. Katta's PhD centered on the experiences of autistic children with technologies and including their first-hand perspectives. Their research agenda is focused on including marginalised perspectives in the design and evaluation of technologies. Other research interests include Games and Play, Critical Computer Science, Gender Studies and Philosophy of Science. Katta plays Roller Derby and can be found knitting in most meetings.
