I studied Knowledge Integration at the University of Waterloo and worked as a design researcher for several years. In my free time, I enjoy canoeing, hiking, sewing, and board games.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

I chose the Interactive Arts and Technology program because it was very interdisciplinary. I knew it would be a good place to blend my interests in human-centred design and technology.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

I'm exploring how technology can help us connect with friends and family we can't see in person. My research is about designing technology to play board games and socialize over distance.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

While I haven't been able to meet them in person yet, I've really enjoyed getting to know fellow students in the Interactive Arts and Technology program. It's a really great group of people!
