Biography

I am a Ph.D. student in the Advanced Interactive Technologies lab at ETH working with Professor Otmar Hilliges. I completed my MSc at Chalmers University in Gothenburg (2016) working on a navigation interface for semi-autonomous vehicles, followed by a research internship at the NUS-HCI lab in Singapore. Before joining the AIT Lab, I was the lead UX designer at DeepCode, developing an AI based suggestion interface to improve developer code quality. I am interested in creating novel interfaces using haptics and sensing in dynamic contexts (such as VR/AR/Sports) which harness the dexterity and mobility of the human body.
