Research:

I’m a Ph.D. student in informatics with a background in architecture, focusing on creating interactive spaces that incorporate emotions, behavior, thinking, and individual differences by merging the physical and digital worlds using interactive technology. I aim to use this technology to improve children’s needs and experiences in health, education, and entertainment.
