    I am Associate Professor in Industrial Design and Director of Graduate Studies in the Myron E.

    My work brings together design, science, and technology to experiment, design and prototype innovative interactive products in the realm of health. My specific interests are in areas related to design for aging, universal design, social innovation, social connectedness, tangible embedded interactions, and robotics. I publish regularly in design, science and technology, human-computer interaction, robotics journals, and diverse conferences, as well serve as a reviewer to prestigious journals such as the International Journal of Design and SAGE Open.
