I am a PhD student in Design. My ongoing PhD work explores how to facilitate sketching or making in order to gain insights in non-idiomatic and design-like situations.
One of my ongoing cases focuses on enabling designers to sketch early concepts for immersive 360 degree fulldome productions and I look into VR as one possible solution. Another case deals with air traffic control where I aim to make an agentive tool to externalize scenarios air traffic controllers imagine in their heads to support their decision-making process.
In both cases I create prototypes in close collaboration with intended end-users, stakeholders, and research engineers. I take a research through design approach to generate knowledge through the process of design action and reflection.
