I’m interested in exploring how design and technology-mediated experiences impact genuine human connections and power dynamics for individuals and groups. Themes I’d like to focus on include connection and senses of belonging, emotions and affects, and behavior biases.

Outside of design, I enjoy exploring different medium of storytelling about identities and belongingness, playing around with various sensorial & emotional stimulations and public/private memories. I believe everyone has an interesting story to tell, as we can never experience the same things in the same way, and we can be connected through this shared strangerhood.
