Postdoctoral Researcher, Aalto University, Finland
(2017 – 2021)
I researched within the field of HCI focusing on the development of interactive systems for animal users, how we can design with and for animals, and how to extend user-centric and participatory practices in this context. I also designed, developed and test novel AR systems to connect people together while they are face-to-face reflecting upon digital representations of selves.
