Summer 2019 Research Internship

I was involved in a research project exploring spatial navigation in VR (virtual reality). We explored the idea of creating an avatar-based interface to guide users as they teleport in VR and help them become less disoriented.

Fall 2019 – Present

I am currently doing research on mid-century Design Theory and Practice as it relates to the National Identity of different countries. I am pursuing a Senior Honors Thesis on this topic, and will be defending it in December 2021.

See this blog post for my design journey on this topic.
