How do we make meaning with data? Not only analytically, but also with our feelings, bodies, materials, and social relationships?
My design research investigates ways of knowing with biosensory data - data about people’s bodies and behaviors. Combining critical making, speculative design, and participatory experiences, I challenge dominant techno-logics of data and explore alternatives. I work with code, circuits, wood, e-textiles, and sound.
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Communication at North Carolina State University. I completed my PhD at the School of Information at the University of California, Berkeley.
