I am excited about how to use new affordances of technology to more effectively engage, influence, shape, and change people's behavior for good by tapping into human emotion via wearable technology.
My reserach is a series of user-centric attempts to understand emotion and form novel ways to express and receive emotion via wearable technology.
I am interested in design and development of a system that targets immediate emotional expressivity over distance through technology affordances.
Wearable technologies either in the form of accessories (e.g. Google glasses, Haptic watches, EKG bracelets and etc.) or clothing with woven electronics and sensors are getting more publicity these days. The results of this study provide useful guidelines for a design of a user-friendly wearable smart clothing that allows non-verbal emotional expressivity.
