I'm a multidisciplinary creative working across art, architecture, design and technology. I design and make interactive installations, perceptual experiments and robotic prototypes that can be characterised as "Vision Machines”. My robots are cute, perceptive and curious - more like us and less like machines. Through devising emotional and affective encounters with robots, I explore the dazzling spectrum of cognitive capacities and intricacies of our entanglement with machines. I hope one day we will have cuter robots to play around instead of scary humanoids we keep designing. 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 her masters degree with Distinction and received 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 Architecture from Tufts University in Boston.
I'm also a part of ArtBizTech a strategy + innovation consultancy and incubator. As an Experiential Designer I design and execute new visions of cross-disciplinary collaboration across digital, physical and experiential domains.
