I work at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and the built environment, where I expliore the relations between technology, developmental psychology, play, learning and design.
How does our physical surrounding shape our cognitive, social, intellectual, physical, perceptual, and emotional growth?
I hold an MA and a PhD from MIT’s Media Lab, and previously studied lighting design at Calarts.
Living between analog and digital, handcrafted and mass-produced, my work explores the ways in which objects and materials mediate and augment experience across contexts and cultures, systems, and scales.
Presently I am exploring how telepresence, calm technologies, and transformable architecture can inform the design of networked public ludic spaces in cities-to-be.
