"Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense"

As a researcher, I am interested in collaboration, socio-material practices, culture and space. I teach design thinking, organizational behavior and qualitative methods. I discovered OpenIDEO as I started working in fall 2010 on a research project on open innovation and since then have participated in multiple challenges, and keep coming back!

I am a graduate student at NYU who loves working on design problems and aims to improve the world using technology and design.

"Dream as if you could live forever, Live as if you could die today."

I am currently an graduate student in NYU Integrated Digital Media. My passions are design, technology and art. I focus more on user experience design, and also design in augmented reality and virtual reality now. I believe technology is about people, only when people are involved could we build something useful and meaningful.
