Professional biography

My research focuses on how electronic textiles (e-extiles) can be used by and for people with impairments and dissabilities. Particularly, I am exploring how personal associations and stories might be linked to textures of materials and manifest themselves as interactive experiences, created by the user themsleves.

My supervisors are Janet van der Linden and Marian Petre.
