Mirana Randriambelonoro is a scientific collaborator at the University of Geneva. Originally from Madagascar, Mirana holds a Bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications (2010) from the Malagasy Federal Institute of Technology in Antananarivo (ESPA, Madagascar), a Master’s degree in Communication Systems (2014) from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland) and a PhD in Information Systems (2020) from the University of Geneva (UNIGE, Switzerland). She is part of the Quality of Life (QoL) technologies Lab, the HI5Lab group (Health Informatics for Innovation, Integration, Implementation and Impact) at the University of Geneva as well as the Geneva Hub for Global Digital Health (gdhub). Her domain of interest focuses on technology for behaviour change, recommender systems, digital health, and digital transformation. She was part of several national and European research projects involving patients with chronic conditions and the ageing population. Starting with novel smartphone-enabled social interfaces, she then explored other domains, including patient simulators, augmented-reality rehabilitation devices, as well as voice-enabled interfaces. She also developed a 3D gamified medical record to educate and engage liver transplant children, as well as a multiplatform tele-expertise software to de-isolate remote medical centres. Additionally, Mirana conducted a participatory strategic reflection on the digital transformation of the University and proposed a concept that will guide the evolution of University library spaces and services in the future.
