My research leverages knowledge of psychology, art and technology both as 1) an analytical methodology to create data-driven user-friendly interfaces, and as 2) inspiration for tactilely-driven artwork to visualize emotion and perception, and enhanced aesthetic and functional opportunities for novel human interactions and experiences.

As a designer, researcher and developer, I hope to pursue research into innovating interactive designs that extend the user experience by enabling the engagement of our various perceptions.  I focus on extending user experience with storytelling and instruction, building toolkits for non-engineers, and developing psyche based artworks with soft robotics, digital fabrication, and human-material interfaces.
