Designing for Movement Experience

I am currently completing my doctoral studies at Simon Fraser University in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT). My research explores kinesthetic movement as a means of extending and transforming interaction with computational devices. My focus is on integrating varying approaches to embodiment — merging cognitive, aesthetic, emotional, and somatic understandings of bodily experience. My work is informed by research in Human-Computer Interaction, particularly the areas of tangible and ubiquitous computing, as well as by art-based disciplines such as dance, theater, and interactive-art. I expect to complete my doctoral studies in December of 2013, and I am currently seeking research positions in either academia or industry where I can continue to investigate the experiential aspects of digital Interaction using a mix of traditional and practice-based methods.
