(Scholarly) Design research

Industrial design requires a lot of intuition, but sometimes research is valuable to validate assumptions and make new discoveries that drive design.

I research with Bryan Howell on color perception, pedagogy in design education.

I also worked as a teaching assistant for a year, doing things like Adobe Illustrator tutorials and giving life advice to the freshmen.
