Professor

Research Overview

My research interests include human-computer interaction, interaction design, user experience, designing tools and interactive systems to support high level skill acquisition and training such as creative and reflective thinking in design, autobiographical reasoning, emotional processing and spatial cognition. This work explores and integrates wearable bio sensors, lifelogging technologies and virtual reality. Analytical orientations: ethnographic and experimental studies, design thinking and design rationale.
