Bioart & Community Labs

I’m studying living media interfaces through (bio)arts-based research, learning more about design, interaction, communities, and HCI research itself.

Checkout my virtual poster presentation on a bioart case study for the UMBC Department of Information Systems Student Research Symposium. A great opportunity to reconnect with colleagues and some research partners over methods, early findings, and possible future directions.

Return to my science fair roots! Presenting at the Student Research Symposium (April 2022)
