background research - interaction design

I started my research in interaction design during year 1in MACD, in my dissertation I explored the field of Human-computer interaction and the metaphors used in interface design. For my studio project I explored alternative ways of organizing personal information in a desktop environment. First year research laid the basis for an in-depth exploration of information visualization in different contexts.

1st year final project: Bookmark Archipelago

While in the first year I investigated virtual information spaces, during year 2 I decided to focus on the more challenging field of Ubiquitous computing, exploring how human-computer interaction happens in contexts different from desktop.
