My work explores art-research integration into more multi-disciplinary platforms for problem discovery, theory building, and creative design in the field of Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI) and media art. I use art practice, technology design, and ethnography as an integrated method to promote more creative ways of HCI learning, teaching and research. I also exhibit my artwork as an alternative form of research representation in which core questions in the fields are explored in both aesthetic and speculative ways. I am currently completing my dissertation entitled 'Improvisation and Aesthetic Engagement for HCI', which explores alternative research and pedagogical frameworks where artists can contribute to the field in their own art practices. I am advised in this work by Dr. Steven Jackson, Dr. Phoebe Sengers, and Dr. Trevor Pinch.
