MASTER

With my background in advertising and graphic design, interaction design feels like a mixture of those two with an additional advantage of system design. I enjoy designing experiences that are simple, intuitive and easy to use which leaves no room for any unnecessary information. When I am not designing, I love to cook and travel to new places.

Lego OASIS Physical Interaction

OASIS (Object Aware Situated Interactive System) allows recognizing and tracking objects & gestures, combined with interactive projection. We designed an interactive playing surface for Lego using OASIS so that a lego toy can create projected terrain and active environments related to its identity. OASIS is a collaboration between Intel Research Labs Seattle and University of Washington.

Abductive Thinking

Inspired by Jon Kolko’s paper on “Abductive thinking and sense making”, I developed this nomograph that can motivate designers to think out of the box and create new ideas. Abductive thinking as defined by Jon Kolko is the best working hypothesis, given all the available data. In the nomography, the pink circle signifies different phases of a design process, blue circle describes different sets of data that a designer [usually] already knows and the yellow circle lists different brainstorming approaches. By changing the nomograph directions, a designer can generate inspirations that can help create new design solution.
