I design experiences and services for new media* technologies.


I work with human-centered design methods, in technology-oriented fields.

I believe that through design I have the chance to increase quality of life of others, by making everyday tasks easy, enjoyable and fun.

Creating meaningfulness through experiences is my main goal in everything I do.


*Computational, interactive digital media such as VR, AR or games

Robot Petting Sea

An interactive art installation made for Flow Festival 2018. On the top floor it houses angry little robot creatures. Through the holes on the bottom, the user can reach in and touch around various surfaces. If the user finds soft, furry areas and pets them, the creatures will calm down.

Created by combining Arduino, 3D printing and traditional methods together with fellow Media Lab student Shreyasi Kar.

After the festival, the installation was a part of Underneath – an immersive labyrinth by Recover Laboratory.
