I’m an artist and researcher based in London. Working at the intersection of art, architecture, design and creative technology, my work revolves around the topics of robotics, perception, intelligence and animacy. I make robotic creatures that are cute, perceptive, animated and responsive - more like us and less like computers.
I also create perceptual experiences and installations that challenge our constructed realities to evoke senses of awe and wonder. My research investigates ways in which technology can challenge and reconfigure our perceptive apparatuses to negotiate the affective, situated and bodily underpinnings of vision and perception. Some of my recent works have been exhibited at the Barbican Centre, Ars Electronica, Ugly Duck, Istanbul Airport among other places.
I joined the Interactive Architecture Lab at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL in 2018 where I completed my masters degree with Distinction and have been awarded the best Thesis Award. Prior to moving to London to join the lab, I worked as an architectural designer in San Francisco. Coming from a multidisciplinary background, I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honours (Cum Laude) in Art History and Architectural Studies from Tufts University in Boston.
I'm also a part of ArtBizTech, a strategy + innovation consultancy and incubator that focuses on rethinking business and technology through artistic research.
