A big part of my work has been trying out and analyzing methods, techniques and new technologies to develop ideas. I build prototypes to support my research because I consider it important to observe people’s interactions with the designed element/space before manufacturing. To me, real design innovation must connect users with their environments through a nurturing interrelation. My goal at the School of Human Ecology is to keep learning to design better solutions that can truly provide well-being to people.
