I design, develop, and study technologies that question human relationships to culture and the environment. I’m particularly interested in how uncertainty shapes interactions with and expectations of technology and how we can develop systems that embrace unpredictability and instability to form more reflective, engaging, and enchanting encounters with everyday things. To date, I have explored these ideas through the design and production of computer aided design and fabrication tools as well as textile based interfaces.
I am an Assistant Professor in the ATLAS Institute and Department of Information Science at the University of Colorado, Boulder where I direct the Unstable Design Lab. I received my PhD at the School of Information at University of California, Berkeley and have bachelors degrees in computer science and studio art from the University of California Santa Barbara.
